Eighty Freeport High School students had the exciting opportunity to attend a production of  Broadway musical “Hamilton: An American Musical,” after being selected for the Hamilton Education Program. 

Last school year, FHS teachers Ms. Natalie Bar-Levy and Mr. Joshua Levitt submitted a grant application with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History to take part in the Hamilton Education Program. The grant provided discounted tickets so that students could attend the Broadway performance.

Students who participated had to use primary source documents to create a song, rap or skit related to the founding era. FHS student Jordan Figueroa had the memorable opportunity to perform his original piece on stage.

In addition, students attended a meet and greet with the cast of Hamilton and submitted questions that were answered by cast members. The day was a tremendous success and all who participated had an amazing time.
