Chance Theater will present the third show of its 16th Anniversary Season -- the groundbreaking 21st century musical, IN THE HEIGHTS. Written by Pulitzer Finalists Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegria Hudes, the musical will feature direction by Chance Artistic Director Oanh Nguyen, choreography by resident artist Kelly Todd and music direction by Robyn Wallace.

IN THE HEIGHTS will preview from July 3 through 10, regular performances will begin July 11 and continue through August 3 at Chance Theater at Bette Aitken Theater Arts Center.

Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical, In The Heights is a potent reminder of the importance of chasing one's dreams and finding where you belong. Featuring a Grammy Award-winning score of hip-hop, rap, jazz, pop, salsa, and merengue that serves as the backdrop for a community with dreams of succeeding in America while at the same time holding onto their culture and heritage.
