The Award Winning Christie Musical Theatre Company (formally Team Christies) return to The Lowther Pavilion with their interpretation of the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award Winning Hit Musical.
In the Heights centres on a variety of characters living in the neighborhood of Washington Heights, on the
northern tip of Manhattan. At the center of the show is Usnavi, a bodega owner who looks after his aging Cuban grandmother next door; pines for the gorgeous Vanessa working in the neighboring beauty salon and dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, Nina, a childhood friend of Usnavi’s, has returned to the neighborhood from her first year at college with surprising news for her parents, who have spent their life savings on building a better life for their daughter. Ultimately, Usnavi and the residents of the close-knit neighborhood get a dose of what it means to be home.
The Christie MT Company combines professionals, highly accomplished amateur performers and exceptional children from around the Fylde Coast in this show written by Lin-Manuel Miranda (composer of Hamilton and Disney’s Moana) in a show infusing traditional Broadway rhythms, salsa, rap, R&B and every type of Latino flavour.
All profits, as always, to THE CHRISTIE CHARITABLE FUND.
