In the News: ‘Hamilton’ Education Program Brings New Energy to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hit Musical
After runs in New York and Chicago, the Hamilton Education Program is now in Los Angeles, where over 7,800 high school students will get the opportunity to see the touring production of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway hit, according to an article in Variety by Rebecca Rubin.
The students, who prepare to see the performance by studying American history using a special curriculum, compose original songs, scenes and raps inspired by the show, which they perform for their peers before the show, Rubin writes.
Wayne D’Orio wrote about the educational program surrounding Hamilton in “Hamilton Goes to High School” from the Summer 2017 issue of Education Next.
