In the Heights

The combined RBHS and RGHS 2022 production was a wonderful success. The Tony winning musical, by Lin-Manuel Miranda about home, family and finding where you belong, was packed full of amazingly catchy songs, vibrant dance numbers, fabulous characters and a heart-felt twist.

Under the directorship of Karaina Walker, Cameron Hay and Elisha Hulton, our students performed 13 stunning shows to schools from the area during the day, and packed houses in the evenings.

Congratulations to the amazingly talented leads and the wonderful ensemble cast. Nga mihi to the staff of both schools who put in so much time and effort in supporting our young people to shine.
