YOBOS - "IN THE  HEIGHTS"
The Tony award-winning musical -- Encounter the many colourful residents of Washington Heights -- a New York City neighbourhood on the brink of change.

Usnavi, a first generation Dominican-American corner bodega owner, and his friends and family are dealing with the pressures of rising rents and closing neighbourhood businesses.

As one family struggles to figure out how to pay for an Ivy League tuition for their brilliant and hard working daughter, a young woman is trying to put a down payment on a new apartment, and Usnavi himself is trying to get back to the Dominican Republic to reconnect with his roots after the death of his parents. In Washington Heights, community is everything, and we see how each of these individuals struggles to survive and how these same individuals come together as a community to mourn their losses and rejoice in their triumphs.

This revolutionary new musical combines Latin rhythms and dance with hip-hop lyrics to tell a captivating story about what it means to chase your dreams as you cling to your roots, and to celebrate the community from which you grew

When: Saturday 14th Aug at 2.30pm. and 7.30pm

Where: at Wykham Theatre at Banbury Academy,
