At Liberty Hall follows two high school students who've just moved to New Jersey: Cristian Rosario, a funny but unfocused teenager from Queens by way of the Dominican Republic; and Alexander Hamilton, 16, the subject of Cristian's 10th grade history project. This time-bending story finds common threads of humor, honor and awkwardness as told through the experiences of a someday-Founding Father and a kid looking for a way out of the projects.

A celebration of the 350th Live is a unique partnership between Premiere Stages and the Liberty Hall Museum that celebrates New Jersey history with professional productions, tours of the museum, interactive displays, workshops for children and talk-backs with local historians.
