VERMILLION, S.D. – University of South Dakota alumnus Ebrin Stanley will perform two roles in the Chicago rendition of “Hamilton.” He will play the roles of James Madison and Hercules Mullegen.
“I feel very blessed and humbled to join Hamilton,” said Stanley who performed in ten USD productions during college including Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar. “Dreams do come true. Keep going, keep dreaming, and keep believing.”
Originally from Houston, Texas, Stanley graduated from USD in 2017 with a musical theatre focus. He moved back to Houston after graduation where he directed and choreographed two children’s shows at the Children’s Museum of Houston. In September 2017, he was cast in a performance of Dead Meat by Paige Zubel in New York City.
“We are incredibly proud of Ebrin’s accomplishment,” said Raimondo Genna, chair of the Department of Theatre. “Not only is Ebrin’s casting a testament of his astonishing talent, but also speaks volumes of the training and opportunities here at USD. We are excited to see Ebrin take the Chicago stage and where he goes from there.”
