Renaissance Theatre presents production of Tony Award-winning musical ‘In The Heights’

McKenzie, TN – Bethel University’s Renaissance Theatre will present the Tony Award-winning musical production of "In The Heights" at the Bethel Performing Arts Center in McKenzie, TN. 

"In The Heights" tells the universal story of a vibrant Cuban, Dominican, and Puerto Rican community in New York City’s Washington Heights neighborhood—a place where the coffee from the bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the streets explode with the songs and rhythms of three generations. 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 Award for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography, and Best Orchestrations.

“We are thrilled to bring this show to McKenzie, TN,” says Aubrey Doyle, Director of Renaissance Theatre.  “’In The Heights’ is an exhilarating musical with a universal message to share. It is a story of spirited celebration, great loss, profound faith and resiliency.”

The show was conceived, and the music and lyrics were written by, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Miranda is perhaps best known today as the creator of Hamilton, which won 11 Tony Awards in 2016, including Best Musical. 

"In The Heights" will hit the stage at 7 p.m.  November 2, 3, 9 and 10, with a 2:00 p.m. matinee performance on Saturday, Nov. 3. Tickets are $10.  To purchase tickets, go to or contact the ticket office (731) 352-6980.  The Renaissance Office is located at 28 Lee Avenue on the square in McKenzie, and tickets will be available to purchase from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

The Bethel Performing Arts Center is located at 625 Stonewall Street North, across from the Police and Fire Station in McKenzie.
