“Dinner and a show” took on a new meaning last week when more than 1400 Atlanta Public Schools students and a number of staff chaperones experienced the award-winning Broadway musical “Hamilton” at the Fabulous Fox Theater. The musical retells the life of Alexander Hamilton in a combination of song and rap. Teachers hope the show increases interest in politics, history and the Revolutionary War.
The musical came to Atlanta last week as part of a 19-city tour. With help from The Coca-Cola Foundation, Flocabulary, Georgia Natural Gas, Georgia Power and the Kendeda Fund, students enjoyed dinner, a pre-show and the amazing musical which has become a world-wide sensation. Students also received a commemorative “Hamilton” t-shirt.
