• Student writer and Untitled@Large theatre club member Alyssa Samuels ’25 shares her experiences producing the Suddenly the Musical, which debuted at Hamilton this spring.

Produced by the student group Untitled@Large, the show was special not only for premiere status, but also because every step of its process signified a chance for student growth and accomplishment.
