If you missed the Selma Arts Center’s very fine production last year of “In the Heights,” now’s your chance to relive some of the magic at a special reunion concert Sunday, July 24, at The Voice Shop.
From the event’s Facebook page:
Grab your flags, turn up your radios, and get your piragua ready. The cast of Selma Arts Center’s 2015 production of IN THE HEIGHTS is back and ready for one last trip to the barrio! Join us as we revisit Lin Manuel Miranda’s eclectic Tony-Award winning score.
Doors will open at 7:30PM. Admission is free. SEATING IS LIMITED. After-party to follow!
Damen Pardo as Usnavi
Cady Mejias as Nina Rosario
Mitchell Lam Hau as Benny
Marisa Sanchez as Vanessa
Mady Broach as Daniela
Maria Monreal as Carla
Michael Flores as Sonny
Angelica Evangelista as Abuela Claudia
Erik Valencia as Kevin Rosario
Laura Ramirez as Camila Rosario
Brandon Yang as Graffiti Pete
Dominic Grijalva as the Piraguero
With Maddie Allen, William Bishop, Michael Dumas, Mandy Hamilton, Sabrina Lopez, Tim Fletcher, and Chanel Walton.
Grijalva, who made a splash as the production’s director, writes:
“We really missed the music, and each other, so we thought this would be a fun thing to do. There will also be a preview performance by cast members from “Heathers” (which opens Aug. 5). It should be a fun night!”
(And, contrary to what you might think, I do not get a $5 bonus every time I write about Grijalva. He’s just a very busy and creative guy these days.)
(Plus, inquiring minds want to know: Will Damen Pardo regrow his goatee by Sunday?)
