Hale Center Theater Orem to Produce IN THE HEIGHTS 10/3-11/23

Hale Center Theater Orem will produce "In the Heights" from October 3 - Nov 23. In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood - a place where the neighbors you meet at the corner bodega (grocery) feel like family, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations. This production is the semi-professional Utah premiere.

In the Heights is directed by Christopher Clark with music direction by Justin Bills and choreography by Jennifer Hill-Barlow. The design team includes Bobby Swenson (scenic design), MaryAnn Hill (costumes), Janna Larsen (hair & make-up), Linda Hale (properties), Cody Swenson (lighting) and Cody Hale (sound).
