Living History: 'Hamilton' inspires Houston students to perform

'Hamilton' may be the hottest ticket in town, but nearly 2,500 Houston-area students and teachers got to see the hit musical for themselves! It's all part of the Hamilton Education Program, which is a national initiative for Title I schools. Students spend weeks learning about Alexander Hamilton and the Revolutionary War era. They even create their own Hamilton-inspired raps, songs and monologues.

At the end of the program, students got to see 'Hamilton' at the Hobby Center and meet the cast in a special Q&A session.

Select students were also chosen to perform their own raps and songs on stage at Hobby Center in front of their peers.

Hamilton's run in Houston ends on May 20.
