On October 28, the entire 7th grade took a field trip to see Hamilton: The Musical on Broadway! The show has earned rave reviews and tells the story of the American colonies with a contemporary twist, including rap, hip-hop, and R&B music. In preparation for the trip, students learned about the history of our founding fathers in school and studied song lyrics from the show.
After the performance, students were treated to a private “talkback” with cast members, in which they asked questions and learned first-hand what is involved in staging a Broadway show. This amazing experience brought their Gateway studies to life in a truly unforgettable way.
