At-Home Digital Program Exploring the Musical “Hamilton”

Hamilton and The Gilder Lehrman Institute (GLI) of America have launched #EduHam at Home, a free digital program for students and their families to explore the world of the Pulitzer Prize–winning musical and America’s founding era. #EduHam at Home is an extension of the Hamilton Education Program (EduHam), a classroom initiative that walks through Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton-creation process and ends with students making and then performing their own musical theatre pieces, including on the stage of the international hit production before a student matinee. With the COVID-19 pandemic keeping schools closed, #EduHam at Home allows students to be creative theatre artists while adhering to social distancing guidelines. Students who register will have access to mentorships that will help them create and perform their own narrative in the form of a song, rap, spoken word, or scene. Their pieces can be submitted for consideration upon completion, with 10 performances selected and shared each week on the Hamilton app, social media, and the GLI website. Additional resources include the primary documents that Miranda used, exclusive Hamilton clips, and interviews with cast and creative team members. #EduHam at Home also provides an American history curriculum, introducing students to the people, events, and documents of the founding era. The program is recommended for students in grades 6–12 but is open to all. It will continue to be available through August 2020.
