On Wednesday, February 22, 1,900 Chicago public school students packed The PrivateBank Theatre for the Hamilton Education Program’s first Chicago student matinee! Thirty schools participated in the inaugural matinee. Twenty-six students—some in groups, others alone—performed their original rap, instrumental pieces, and poetry, based on the innovative Founding Era curriculum developed by the Gilder Lehrman Institute. The day also included a Q&A with the cast, led by the director, Thomas Kail.
