Musical Theater Featuring Songs from Hamilton

Capture-Register_new
HamiltonHAMILTON, conceived and written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the man behind musical phenomenon In the Heights, brings the story of founding father Alexander Hamilton to the stage. Seamlessly injecting contemporary music into a historical tale, HAMILTON has received enthusiastic critical acclaim and unprecedented advance box office sales.

If you are as big of a fan as we are and can't get enough of HAMILTON, you are going to LOVE this full-day camp! Campers will celebrate this blockbuster Broadway sensation of the year as they explore the Founding Fathers through hip-hop, R&B and rap while performing their favorite tracks from the hit soundtrack. Having creative ownership over their theatrical experience, students can choose to showcase their own version of this 11-time Tony Award Winning Musical or create and perform in their very own Hamilton-inspired musical.

And the world's gonna know your name!

Full day camps enable our older campers to delve deeper into their Dream Big experience. We'll have more time to engage with all areas of the theatrical experience, deepen our connections and develop all of our newly learned skills and innate talents!

    Doors open 15 minutes prior to your camp start time. If you are running late, please contact your child’s teacher at the number provided in your confirmation email so they can let you in.
