Berkshire Arts & Technology Charter Public School has received a grant from the Gilder Lehrman Foundation that will afford a group of students the special opportunity to attend Broadway's hit musical "Hamilton" at the Boston Opera House this October. BArT is proud to share this remarkable learning experience with students.

American History students were informed of the field trip to Hamilton on their first day of school, Aug. 20.  Only high school students currently enrolled in BArT American History courses will be eligible to attend "Hamilton" after they participate in a three-week course of study on the American Revolution and create an original performance piece. As part of the Hamilton Education Program, one such student performance will have the chance to be shown before the musical in Boston. Students will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the cast members after the show.
