Hamilton. It’s more than just one of the most successful Broadway musicals ever—it’s a straight-up cultural phenomenon. Your aunt loves it. Beyoncé loves it. We love it! And now you’re going to experience the smash hit for yourself. Raise a glass to freedom, because you and a friend are headed to New York City to see the show from VIP seats! You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll sing—and rap—along. Best of all, you’ll get to be in the room where it happens when you go on a backstage tour with members of the cast. Don’t throw away your shot! Flights and hotel are included.
Opening Act seeks to level the playing field for students attending New York City’s most under-served public high schools by offering students opportunities to develop leadership, community and commitment through its innovative, high quality, free theater programming. Currently offered at 51 schools in Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx, Opening Act’s year-long After School Theater Program teaches improvisation, acting technique and writing exercises. The program culminates in an original production created, written and performed by the students in a professional theater. The program provides a safe, inclusive and supportive environment so that their students feel empowered to share their stories.
