On Wednesday, December 7, 2016, forty-five District 186 middle and high school music students/staff had the opportunity to attend the musical production of Hamilton at Chicago's PrivateBank Theatre. Creator Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical production of Hamilton is about the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The show was inspired by historian Ron Chernow's 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton. Since its opening in February 2015, Hamilton has achieved both critical acclaim and box office success. Students and staff also had the opportunity to eat lunch and experience the Rainforest Cafe.
