BRINGING THE STREETS OF NEW YORK CITY TO THE ADELAIDE STAGE
Long anticipated musical In the Heights is coming to Adelaide at the Arts Theatre this September, presented by the award-winning team at Pelican Productions.
Hailed as a revolutionary musical, In the Heights combines Latin rhythms and dance with modern hip hop lyrics, to capture the audience in a tale about chasing your dreams and celebrating your community. Told by the colourful residents from Washington Heights - a New York City neighbourhood on the brink of change, the story follows a community’s struggle to find its sense of identity against a backdrop of rising rents, racism and of course human endeavours of lust and love.
With the book written by Quiara Alegria Hudes, and music and lyrics written by Broadway darling Lin-Manuel Miranda, (Hamilton, Bring It On The Musical, Moana), In the Heights was nominated for thirteen Tony awards, winning four including the 2008 Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Choreography awards.

The Arts Theatre was opened in 1963 by Governor Eric Bastyan as a result of an initiative by the Adelaide Repertory Theatre company. The Rep, which had previously been performing in various locations around Adelaide, had raised funds to build the theatre as their permanent performance space.
Hosting around fourteen shows a year, the theatre has served not only the members of the Repertory Theatre, but also other theatre groups and the community at large, for over thirty years
