North's In the Heights cast performing on stage

The Des Moines Performing Arts organization has recognized North High’s production of In the Heights with its top honors:
  • Outstanding Musical Production
  • Outstanding Student Orchestra
  • Outstanding Performance in a Principle Role by Abby Bastian as “Nina,” Isaiah Gibbs as “Benny,” and Josh Reid as “Usnavi”
  • Special Recognition for Ensemble
  • Special Recognition for Performance as a Featured Dancer for Nik LaMaack
  • Performance in a Principle Role for Hannah DeFauw as “Vanessa” and Zoe Purcell as “Daniela”
North is the only high school in the Quad Cities receiving these honors, and as a result, the show’s principle actors and key ensemble members will be performing a cutting (mini performance) of “Sunrise/96,000” from In the Heights at the Iowa High School Musical Theatre Awards (IHSMTA) Showcase on June 5th. In addition, Abby will perform in a medley with other students who are competing in the IHSMTA Triple Threat program.
