     Attention, Listen up. Our spring musical IN THE HEIGHTS is premiering tonight.The show begins tonight at 7 p.m. and Saturday night at the same time with tickets being sold for $5 at the S.O. store and $10 at the door.

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." The talented cast has put together a wonderful performance that was shown Thursday, April 30th during 8th period. We were able to get a sneak peak of what's in store for tonight and it is definitely worth seeing. Come on out and experience a musical story !
