IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighbourhood – 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, and Best Choreography.
SUNSHINE ON LEITH
By Stephen Greenhorn, featuring the songs of The Proclaimers

Created and produced by Dundee Rep Theatre, SUNSHINE ON LEITH (featuring the songs of The Proclaimers) follows the highs and lows of Ally and his friend Davy as they return home to Leith from the army.

SUNSHINE ON LEITH is a vibrant, energetic piece of musical theatre, loved by audiences and critics alike.
