In the Heights
After a hit showcase season in which all of the final year students received offers of representation from agents they will be back in July for their final production before graduation. See them here first!
In the Heights is set over the course of three days, involving characters in the largely Hispanic-American neighbourhood of Washington Heights in New York City. Expect vibrant salsa and urban dance styles choreographed by Ingrid Mackinnon (Credits include Movement Director for RSC, Almeida Theatre and London Festival of American Music.

The summer production is directed by award winning Writer and Director Ché Walker. Ché Walker is the multi-award-winning writer director behind UK Netflix’s hit Been So Long starring Michaela Coel and Arinzé Kene.
Musical Director Phil Cornwell is no stranger to In the Heights - He was the MD on the West End show! Phil’s theatre credits include as Musical Director In The Heights (Southwark Playhouse) and The Scottsboro Boys (West End).
