The musical “In The Heights,” by Lin Manuel-Miranda, premiered in July of 2005 and on Broadway in March of 2008. It was nominated for 13 Tony awards and won four, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Choreography.
The Pierce Theatre Department had the enviable trouble of more performers than roles.
“It was almost too difficult to cast because we had so much talent,” Vaaz said. “We have a double cast because we did not want to turn the talent away.
“In the Heights” opens Friday, April 26, at 8 p.m., at the Performing Arts Building Mainstage. The play will run April 27 and 28 and May 2-5 with the times varying.
