Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning hip-hop history lesson “Hamilton” arrived Wednesday night at Salt Lake City’s Eccles Theater — and some of the musical’s Utah fans seeing it opening night are sharing their joy on social media.

Here’s a sampling of Twitter and Instagram posts from Utah theatergoers:

Here’s a compliment to the locals from the actor playing Alexander Hamilton:

Morales’ kind words got a response from celebrity chef Tom Woodbury:

Meanwhile Wednesday afternoon, in West Valley City, more than 50 Granger High School students shared the musical and spoken-word pieces they’ve created through the educational initiative known as EduHam. They’re among 81 Granger students who participated in the program, which has been a key component of the “Hamilton” experience since the show opened on Broadway in 2015.

To earn deeply discounted tickets to the blockbuster musical, students must complete a specially designed curriculum, study original founding documents and create an original work — rap, song, poem, essay or even, in the case of one creative Granger student, a puppet show — inspired by a figure or moment in American history. At Granger, lesser-known Revolutionary War heroes such as civilian spy Emily Geiger were included alongside household names such as Benjamin Franklin and Abigail Adams.

Twelve regional winners in Utah will be invited to perform on the Eccles Theater stage before the May 4 matinee of “Hamilton.”
