The stars of San Francisco’s Hamilton bring performance tips and personal stories to show the students of our 2019 Summer Debate Institute the power of debate.
Congratulations to everyone who took part in our 2019 Summer Debate Institute from July 22-26. Thank you to our hosts, Yerba Buena High School in San Jose, all the coaches and the stars from San Francisco’s Hamilton who inspired, challenged, and delighted participants across this week-long debate workshop. SVUDL was beyond thrilled to welcome San Francisco ‘Hamilton’ actors Morgan Anita Wood, DeAundre' Woods, Christopher Henry Young and Marja Harmon to day one of our Summer Debate Institute program. These four talented rising stars of Broadway shared valuable tips and tricks from the stage to help our students hone their debate skills, and KQED was there to capture it all!

KQED covered day one of our Summer Debate Institute and got the inside track from SF’s Hamilton stars on how acting and debating relate.
In the world of Broadway theatre, Mondays are known as “dark” days as rarely are shows performed on Mondays. What do talented performers cast in award-winning musicals do on their Monday days off in the SF Bay Area? Well, Christopher Henry Young, Morgan Anita Wood, Marja Harmon, and DeAundre Woods, all current cast members of the San Francisco tour of Hamilton, spent part of their day off on Monday, July 22 leading special workshops for students attending SVUDL’s 2019 week-long Summer Debate Institute!
KQED was there to capture all of the action and talked to the stars to get their insights on the power of debate and living your truth.
