Get ready to be blown away, Sydney!” said HAMILTON‘s original producer Jeffrey Seller.

“We are overjoyed to welcome back so many familiar faces for Sydney but also to welcome some new members to our Australian HAMILTON family,” said Australian Producer Michael Cassel.

“We promised we would be back, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the group of people who will tell this incredible story every night when we return to the Sydney Lyric Theatre in July. This company is testimony to the incredible and diverse talent we have on our stages in Australia”.

HAMILTON made its Australian premiere at the Sydney Lyric Theatre on Wednesday 17 March, 2021 and was met with overwhelming audience and critical acclaim. The original Australian production went on to play in Melbourne, Brisbane and New Zealand, concluding in June.

HAMILTON is the epic saga that follows the rise of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton as he fights for honour, love, and a legacy that would shape the course of a nation. Based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography and set to a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and Broadway, HAMILTON has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.

HAMILTON features book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire.

In addition to its 11 Tony Awards, it has won Grammy, Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors. The production has been seen by more than 22 million people worldwide.

The Australian production of HAMILTON is produced by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman, The Public Theater and Michael Cassel.
