The Coughlin/G.A.R. Players Present:
In the Heights
The Coughlin/GAR Players are proud to present
Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit broadway musical 
In the Heights.

In the Heights is a musical with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and a book by Quiara Alegría Hudes. The story is set over the course of three days, involving characters in the largely Dominican-American neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City.

In the Heights centers on a variety of characters living in the neighborhood of Washington Heights, on the northern tip of Manhattan. At the center of the show is Usnavi, a bodega owner who looks after the aging Cuban lady next door, pines for the gorgeous girl working in the neighboring beauty salon and dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, Nina, a childhood friend of Usnavi’s, has returned to the neighborhood from her first year at college with surprising news for her parents, who have spent their life savings on building a better life for their daughter. Ultimately, Usnavi and the residents of the close-knit neighborhood get a dose of what it means to be home.

Show dates are:
*Thursday March 2nd at 7pm*
Friday March 3rd at 7pm
Saturday March 4th at 7pm
Sunday March 5th at 2pm
Tickets are $10 all ages
*Special senior citizens pricing for Thursday March 2nd only $7 for ages 55 & over.
