San Antonio native stars in ‘Hamilton’ national tour

Broadway musical now playing at the Majestic Theatre until July 2nd

SAN ANTONIO – The national tour of the Broadway musical “Hamilton” is now playing at the Majestic Theater, and audiences will see a familiar face in a starring role.

Jared Howelton, who grew up in San Antonio, plays Marquis de Lafayette & Thomas Jefferson.

Howelton attended the North East School of the Arts magnet program at Robert E. Lee High School where he majored in musical theater.

“It was truly an out-of-body experience to be able to come back. I haven’t performed professionally in my hometown ever, so it’s a joy! Being on the stage now and performing for whatever new little kid is looking at me looking to do the same thing, that’s really dope,” Howelton said.

The show’s return to San Antonio is highly expected after last year’s performances were cut short due to a COVID-19 outbreak among the cast.

All but three of last year’s performances were rescheduled to this year, so tickets are going fast but are still available. Click here for ticket information.
