Hamilton Trip

GCSE Performing Arts students were given the opportunity to attend an educational performance of Hamilton at the Victoria Palace Theatre, London, on Tuesday 30th April.

This gave the students a unique opportunity to see a world class performance of a culturally relevant and popular show.

The Year 10 students had a Q&A with the cast at the end of the show where they discussed job roles in the theatre and were shown how all the tech worked backstage.

The students had the best time!

Hamilton is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and helped shape the very foundations of the America we know today. The score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway – the story of America then, as told by America now. The Olivier, Tony and Grammy award-winning production of Hamilton originally opened at the Public Theatre in New York in 2015. Later that year, the Broadway production opened and, in December 2017, the London production opened at the newly rebuilt and restored Victoria Palace Theatre.
