Hamilton theatre trip

The Politics Department organised a visit to the Victoria Palace Theatre to see Hamilton before half term. Twenty students across years 11 – 13 attended the performance and all were impressed. The smash hit musical lives up to all the hype surrounding it, even several years after it first premiered.

The performance, which still sells out every evening and matinee, was stunning. The play tells the story about America’s fight for independence and the challenges faced by the founding fathers in forging out a new constitution and country. At the heart of the story is Alexander Hamilton, a flawed individual, who is brought down by hubris and is sadly shot and killed in a duel with Aaron Burr in 1804. The story, music and choreography is first rate and one is left feeling sorry for other musicals and plays which have to compete with it. A great night out was had by all!
