This winter's East Coast snow storm was nothing! Lin-Manuel Miranda has truly taken Broadway by storm!! Miranda, the creative genius behind the Tony Award winning musical In The Heights has hit it BIG. His musical Hamilton, a portrayal of our first Secretary and architect of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, is the hottest ticket on Broadway and will most likely sweep the 2016 Tony Awards. And YOU could get a chance to see it.
Continuing Education at UW-Waukesha, UW-Washington County, and UW- Sheboygan have joined forces under the leadership of Regional Director, Holly Wehrhahn. Holly wants her regional campuses to continue the goal set by Waukesha to be YOUR conduit to cutting edge theater. We’ve taken you to Book of Mormon, Billy Elliott, Carole King’s Beautiful, Second City, pre-Broadway premieres, and much, much more, and we want to continue. We know you’ve been waiting for Hamilton and we want to be your connection to it as part of an enriching day in Chicago.
In the past year, UW-Colleges Southeast Region has taken hundreds of life-long learners from Continuing Education to see this American sensation! Lin-Manuel Miranda’s creation, Hamilton, based on Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography of the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, has won 11 Tony Awards, a Grammy, and the Pulitzer Prize for drama. We sold out before our catalog went to print and are currently working on securing tickets for another show. If you would like to see why Hamilton has already become a classic, you will want to register to be on our waitlist. Price will be dependent on ticket availability. Our past daytrip package was $324/person and included front Mezzanine seats, lunch at Rivers Restaurant, and transportation from UW-Waukesha on Coach USA, aka UWC’s “University on Wheels”.
