Our Watkinson private school CAP students did a Broadway workshop last Friday in New York City at the Pearl Rehearsal Studios with Hamilton cast member Thayne Jasperson. Jasperson has been in the Broadway smash-hit musical since it opened, playing Samuel Seabury, singing and dancing in the chorus, and understudying the role of King George. Jasperson has also been on Broadway in Newsies and Matilda and was a featured dancer on So You Think You Can Dance. Students learned the words and choreography of a section of “The Schuyler Sisters” and had the opportunity to speak with Thayne about his career.
Other highlights of the day included a visit to the Eugene Richards show at the International Center for Photography and a performance of the Tony Award-winning musical The Band’s Visit.
