The cast of Hamilton put on a show for Boston public schools on Thursday. Not only did the students get to watch the show, they got to ask the performers questions. And this is all part of a special curriculum.

About 2,500 Boston Public Schools students cheered, screamed, and clapped as their classmates took the stage at the Boston Opera House with the iconic Hamilton set behind them. Students created songs and spoken-word pieces, showing off their skill with a quill.

It’s all part of the Hamilton Education Program, which provides a curriculum based on the play to students in underserved communities. The students also got treated to a question and answer session with cast members and saw a special matinee performance of the hit show.
