IN THE HEIGHTS
IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. IN THE HEIGHTS is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.
IN THE HEIGHTS will feature the most diverse and inclusive cast that Edina theater has seen in years. The cast features EHS veterans and several newcomers. It is sure to be a fresh and exciting musical written and composed by the man who wrote Hamiliton-Lin Manuel Miranda.

Edina Thespians' Production of
Peter and the Starcatcher
was a MAJOR SUCCESS at the
International Thespian Festival at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln!
THANK YOU to all of our thespian, artistic team and families
who represented Edina with professionalism, creativity,
and outstanding THESPIAN SPIRIT!!
An undertaking like this doesn't happen by accident. It takes an enormous commitment. It takes meticulous planning and hours of rehearsal. It takes all the right people in all the right places. It takes a community and district that not only shows support by coming to the shows, but also shows support by offering help and resources when asked.
It was our third main stage performance at the festival and I think we not only figured out all of the logistics, we also created a template for success. Many other main stage productions were impressed with our show, and want to compare notes, based on our success. On a personal note...Edina is a great place to belong. It is so refreshing to dream and then have it realized. I knew we were main stage material for many years. Disney and MTI sought us out to perform this show, and we had a lot to live up to and did it. I also knew it would be tough to accomplish. Every single person jumped on board to make this happen and for that I say...
