History Comes Alive: The Hamilton Education Program
WBGO News, June 8, 2018 — Doug Doyle of WBGO reports on the latest Hamilton Education Program performance at Richard Rogers Theatre.
Living history at its best. In October 2015, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda; Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller, the Gilder Lehrman Institute, The Rockefeller Foundation and the New York City Department of Education announced an educational partnership that will provide 20,000 NYC Title I public school students with the opportunity to see Hamilton on Broadway.
But before students get their shot to see the show, their teachers guide them through a hands-on classroom studies program using Gilder Lehrman Institute resources to introduce the students to the people, events, and documents of the founding era.
