Taking a break from performing to sell-out crowds, Pink surprised the cast of In The Heights at Chatswood’s The Concourse Theatre by attending their closing night on Sunday. 

Pink gave a local theatre group a closing night to remember when she rocked up to their performance in Chatswood this week.

In Sydney for her ‘Summer Carnival’ Tour, the singer-songwriter took her family to see Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony Award-winning musical, In The Heights, at the Concourse Theatre.

The cast and crew only knew 10 minutes before going on stage that the Trustfall singer would be in the audience.

While nerves were undoubtedly high, the cast delivered, with Pink leading the audience in a standing ovation.

A video posted to the theatre group’s Instagram page shows the Grammy Award winner visiting the performers backstage.

“That was so hard to sit, I was like, ‘I want to dance too!’” the singer told the cast and crew. “You guys are so good.”

“Thank you, that was amazing,” she said, sharing that her daughter, Willow, also wants to be in musical theatre.

The show’s director, Rodrigo Medina Noel, said the experience was “truly beyond words.”

“Thank you so much to everyone who came to watch our final performance of In The Heights,” said Noel.

“Receiving a standing ovation from an idol at our own production is an indescribable experience! P!NK having you watch our show and give us a standing ovation was truly beyond words! I’m at a loss for words to describe this feeling.”

While the run is over for In The Heights at the Concourse, the superstar’s attendance highlights the Tony award-winning musical, which captures shared struggles, resilience, and the pursuit of aspirations. It won four Tony awards, including Best Musical.

In an article on the group’s website, Pan Academies of Creative Arts (PACA), the team writes, “As a global superstar known for her authenticity and advocacy, her attendance serves as a powerful reminder of the impact that the arts can have in bringing communities together and celebrating diversity.”

“Her genuine enthusiasm and support for the production exemplify the magic that can happen when artistry and community converge.”

Pink and her family have been making the most of Sydney while they’ve been here with several pics on the singer’s Instagram showing them sightseeing and bike riding at the Sydney Opera House, enjoying a meal at Bondi and now some of our local theatre.

She’s thoroughly welcome to visit the North Shore again any time (no ID required!).
