The community is invited to enjoy an evening of dinner, live music and theater at Kansas City Kansas Community College’s “A Night in the Heights” event.
Sponsored by KCKCC and El Centro, the event begins at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, with a reception in the upper level of the Jewell Building on KCKCC’s main campus. Dinner follows at 6 p.m. with the musical “In the Heights” starting at 8 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. There will also be a cash bar. All proceeds go to benefit the music and theater departments at KCKCC.
Set in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City, “In the Heights” is a musical that uses dance styles such as hip hop, salsa and rap to tell the story of a close-knit Latin community. During the dinner, which will feature Latin cuisine, the KCKCC Jazz Band will perform. A surprise announcement from the music department will also be made during the event.
Tickets are available for “A Night in the Heights” in the Intercultural Center at KCKCC or by calling 913-288-7504. For more information about “A Night in the Heights,” contact Barbara Clark-Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org.
