In the highest Heights

LAST year’s Tri.Art production of In the Heights at Frome’s Merlin Theatre has won the David Beach award as the best youth show in the Somerset Drama David Beach Competition.

The memorable and hugely enjoyable show (see www.theftr.co.uk/ in-the-heights-tri-art-theatre-summer-school-at-frome-merlin), is an early work by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, and incorporates his hip-hop lyrics and catchy tunes. It was a great challenge for the large cast, and they did it wonderfully.
