THE BRONX - Thousands of the city's public school students are getting a unique experience to one of the most popular shows on Broadway.

A total of 20,000 city kids will now have the opportunity to see "Hamilton" on Broadway.

Tickets to the show can cost hundreds of dollars, but through a $1.5 million grant, the Rockefeller Foundation is helping producers of "Hamilton" reduce the price to only $10 per student.

 "This is something students will remember 10 years from now," said Principal Jessica Goring of the Bronx School of Law and Finance.

As a part of the program, students also had to submit projects that creatively expressed what they know about Alexander Hamilton.

The students will get to see the show and meet the cast on April 13.
