In order to qualify for this invitation, students were required to take part in a 3-5 day lesson on Alexander Hamilton. They were then to create an original skit, monologue, poem or song about the Founding Era that incorporated information from primary source documents.
Thanks to the generosity of the Gilder-Lehrman Institute of American History, students were able to see this play for only $10.
The Hamilton Education Program selected CCCHS students Landon Hunter, Jerry Reed and Dillon Vance as one of 15 student projects to be presented on stage in front of all 38 schools attending.
The group was given backstage access, met with Hamilton cast and performed their original work on the set of Hamilton. Later, they were interviewed by local media.
A huge shout out to CCCHS History teacher Spencer Cooke for making this opportunity happen!
