Virtual Event Featuring Miguel Cervantes, Star of Hamilton-Chicago.
August 12th at 7-9pm CST
Miguel has performed over 1,200 times as Hamilton in Chicago. And, just recently, has been asked to play Hamilton on Broadway in New York.
However, Miguel's more impressive performance is his role as father. In late 2019, Miguel's 3 year old daughter passed away after her battle with epilepsy.
This experience inspired Miguel to get involved with local charities such as The Chicago Autism Project.
During this event, Miguel will share more about his role as Hamilton and his journey as a parent of a child with disabilities.
Miguel will also perform live for us by singing:
- Wait for it
- Mash-Up: You'll Be Back / Somewhere over the Rainbow
You will then have the opportunity to chime in and ask Miguel questions on his personal story.
Don't throw away your shot to be a part of a magical event for a great cause!
Help provide life-changing resources for children with autism and their families
Did you know 1 in 68 children are identified as being on the autism spectrum? Chicago Autism Project (CAP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children and families impacted by autism.
We fulfill our mission through three critical programs: Community events for families, education and growth of the leading ABA professionals in the industry as well as therapy for under resourced families.
What Parents Are Saying
- "I remember sitting at home thinking… will he ever walk, make eye contact, speak, form sentences, or take part in relationships with others his age? Today, he does all of those things. I truly believe that without the Chicago Autism Project, none of this would have been possible."
- Teresa M.
- "In just 2 months, my son went from saying 2 words to being able to fully communicate with me. Now, he sings Twinkle Twinkle Little Star all the way home from his sessions. There is no better feeling than being able to communicate with your child. It allows you to connect, bond with them at an entirely new level. And, I owe that all to the Chicago Autism Project. You do not know the impact you are making. It’s much more than you know."
- Amada G.
- "I really appreciate this support for my son’s overall developmental efforts in getting all the help he needs at this stage of his life. He is a lovely and high spirit boy who has all the potential to become whatever he desires. Thanks for being part of his journey."
