NC Theatre is very fortunate to have someone like Casey Hushion on our staff and working with our local youth in our fabulous production of Disney's High School Musical 2! When Casey is not working on a North Carolina Theatre production, either as director or artistic director, she is working on an array of other projects. One of these projects is Broadway's In The Heights, where she is the assistant director on the show. In The Heights won four Tony's, including Best Musical in 2007!
PBS aired a special called In The Heights: Chasing Broadway Dreams. In case you missed it, you must visit their website and check out the clips - it is truly inspiring! And you will catch a glimpse of Casey in a few of the shots! Click here and enjoy!
