The Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society presents CelebrateHAMILTON 2016
The life and legacy of Alexander Hamilton will be on center stage in Elizabeth, New Jersey on Thursday and Friday, July 7 and 8 . Two days of free programs, productions and public events are planned for attendees, and will also feature special guest appearances by actor Jon Rua, of the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton,” and book signing with historian Michael Newton, author of “Alexander Hamilton: The Formative Years.” The two-day event also features the Elizabeth “Young Immigrant Hamilton Tour,” which explores historic sites associated with Alexander Hamilton’s time in the Elizabethtown, New Jersey area including Boxwood Hall and Liberty Hall Museum, with special programming at Snyder Academy.
“With the popularity of the true-to-history Broadway hit Hamilton, people are eager to learn more about Alexander Hamilton – and Union County is a great place to start,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen. “The Freeholder Board is proud to sponsor the CelebrateHAMILTON 2016 event honoring the incredible life and legacy of Alexander Hamilton. From Hamilton’s connections to Union County and our rich history, to hearing from Jon Rua, a Union County native and Broadway actor featured in the ensemble of the hit musical Hamilton, this event provides a truly unique opportunity for residents of all ages to learn more about one of America’s most influential founding fathers.” Additional sponsors for CelebrateHAMILTON in Elizabeth include Elizabethtown Gas and PSE&G.
