‘In The Heights,’ is a musical based on a book by Quaira Alergría Hudes and takes places around the center of the lives of a variety of characters living in the neighborhood of Washington Heights of Manhattan. Unlike a lot of classical musical theater you might think of, ‘In The Heights’ brings a fresh new modern style to broadway through a score primarily consisting of hip-hop, salsa, merengue and soul music.

College of the Desert’s award winning performing arts program will be performing four shows of the Tony Award-winning musical May 3 to May 6  at the McCallum Theatre.  The annual spring musical starts on May 3 at 7 p.m. with additional performances on May 4 and 5 at 8 p.m. and an afternoon show at 2 p.m. on May 6. Ticket prices range from $22 and $37.
