Students excited for field trip to award-winning musical in Minneapolis
Marshalltown High School students are buzzing about a highly-anticipated field trip they will be taking on Thursday, October 4.
A total of 102 MHS students in American History and AP Government classes taught by Tim Johnson and Brad Rahmiller will take a trip to Minneapolis to see a matinee performance of the Tony award winning musical “Hamilton” by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
In addition, the students will participate in a question and answer session with cast members and view a student performance workshop.
“It’s a once in a lifetime experience to see the musical and to ask questions of the cast,” Rahmiller said.
Johnson said most of the students are familiar with the “Hamilton” musical.
“There’s a lot of excitement and most of them are aware of how popular the musical is,” Johnson said.
Funding for the tickets and program that day were through the Hamilton Education Program. The Martha-Ellen Tye Foundation and the Ann Keyser Trust have provided donations for dinner and transportation costs. The musical and activities that day will be held at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis.
