The Classroom Where it Happens (Gr. 3-8) TWO WEEK PROGRAM
Do not throw away your shot at being part of this program! Through acting, writing, visual art, dramaturgy, music, and movement participants in this innovative class will dive deep into the history and cultural context of the exciting Broadway musical Hamilton. Join us to make your mark on history by creating a one-of-a-kind, multimedia final piece! This is a two week program.
Please be advised: this program will include discussions on racism, history of oppression, and other potentially difficult topics. Some of the words and lyrics from Hamilton that will be studied and played in class contain profanity and references to violence, but students will not be speaking or singing any of these lines in class or when performing. We ask that you use your best judgement on if the material from Hamilton is appropriate for your child prior to registering. Please reach out to the education team if you have further questions.
