Dear friends of Cabrillo Stage, 


I’m excited to announce our 2024 summer production, "In the Heights" (music and lyrics by Lin Manuel Miranda; book by Quiara Alegría Hudes). An instant sensation when it premiered on Broadway 15 years ago, In the Heights is set in 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 a love letter to home which makes it perfect for us. We all understand that unique relationship to the place we grew up. Since moving here, I’ve been struck by the depth of pride people have for this area. Whether from Watsonville or Scotts Valley, Aptos or Santa Cruz, locals are quick to express what they love about their hometowns. People return to work on our productions year after year because Cabrillo Stage feels like home. I’m excited to present a musical that celebrates that affection for a place that shapes us.
