Many people don’t realize the smash hit broadway show Hamilton also offers once-in-a-lifetime educational and performance opportunities to students who would not otherwise be able to experience the musical. Developed in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, The Hamilton Education Program will give 250,000 students the chance to see Hamilton and participate in the interactive curriculum – thanks in part to a $1,000,000 gift from the Toys R Us Children’s Fund.

Credo Nonfiction worked with Toys R Us and Gilder Lehrman Institute to find the story of a student whose life was being impacted from this unique program. After chatting with dozens of history teachers in the NYC area, we found and captured the story of David, who is not throwing away his shot. The resulting film has helped raise awareness of the program and increased donor engagement on behalf of the Children’s Fund.
