CBW Youth Theatre are excited and proud to present to you ‘In the Heights’, a joyous and fast-paced musical from the pen of the creator of ‘Hamilton’, Lin-Manuel Miranda, which has played to packed audiences all around the world. (Miranda also wrote the music for ‘Moana’).
It’s a hot, hot summer in Washington Heights, Manhattan, as the residents of the street go about their daily business, doing their best to get by. Most of them have come here from all over Central America looking for a better life-there’s the girls who work in the hair salon; the hardworking couple who run the taxi company, slaving away all hours to earn enough to send their clever daughter to University; the local graffiti artist, and the piragua guy, keeping everyone cool with his ice cones. They are introduced to us by the central character, the owner of the corner store, Usnavi – so called because his parents named him after the first thing they saw on their arrival; a ship bearing the logo U.S. Navy. All the inhabitants of the street are watched over by Abuela (grandmother) Claudia, who has fed the birds and cared for a whole generation of children and families for as long as anyone can remember.
The central themes of the musical are about home, belonging, community, the restless desire to move on, or stay put, to find a better life, somewhere…. the love stories are ‘grown-up’ versions of the familiar boy meets girl, everyone lives happily ever after, and are more complex and truer to life. The quick fire humour sparkles, and the music and dancing evoke the sultry heat of a Latin summer.
The cast of CBW are so thrilled to be performing this show, and would love to share their joy and energy with you. Book now to be sure of your place at the street party that is ‘In the Heights’!

National Theatre Live
adapted by Helen Edmundson
based on the novel by Andrea Levy
Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel Small Island comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.
Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury.
The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.
A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story.
This production has been filmed live in front of an audience.
