Belmont senior musical theatre major Christopher Lee was recently cast as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson in the Chicago production of Hamilton after submitting a video submission to the show’s production team.
Lee said the opportunity to join the cast and crew of Hamilton will be a life changing one. “This opportunity means literally everything,” he said. “One day it was a far-fetched dream and today it’s a reality.”
This experience hasn’t come without significant work, and Lee said he points to God for his success. “I thank God for every open and closed door that led to this experience,” Lee said. ” I also thank my family, the Belmont University Musical Theatre Program and last but definitely most, my mother. She’s everything.”
Looking to the future, Lee said he hopes to become a working actor, singer, songwriter, all around artist.
