Tickets to the three-week engagement of the play “Hamilton,” starring Lin-Manuel Miranda in Puerto Rico, sold out in under three hours when they went on sale Nov. 10.

But a few tickets are still available for $1,500 as a fundraiser for the St. John School of the Arts (SJSA). The school was able to reserve a block of tickets for the night of Jan. 26, 2019, to sustain its programs that continue to bring the arts to the entire St. John community.

To reserve a ticket for the Jan. 26th performance, email a request to Upon confirmation of availability, payment must be made by check and mailed to Ronnie Lee, 107 Cross St., Pound Ridge, NY 10576.

As the St. John School of the Arts is a non-profit organization, $1,161.60 of the full price is tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Miranda is reprising his role in his play, which won the Pulitzer Prize and 11 Tony Awards. It tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, who was born in Nevis and raised on St. Croix. Following a devastating hurricane, he migrated to the Colonies in 1772 and became one of the architects of American democracy.

The production of “Hamilton” in Puerto Rico was conceived as a way to bring funding to arts organizations in Puerto Rico still suffering the effects of Hurricane Maria in 2017. St. John was heavily damaged by Hurricane Irma only two weeks before Hurricane Maria struck, but the St. John School of the Arts provided free classes in music, theater, dance and the visual arts to all children on St. John throughout the school year. The sale of the tickets to “Hamilton” will ensure that the SJSA can continue its mission.
