The Flying Squirrels held a  15-minute fireworks extravaganza choreographed to selections from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s award-winning Broadway musical, HAMILTON with special guest Tony award-winning actor Chris Jackson, who starred in the role of George Washington in the original Broadway production. Along with the firworks show they had:

  • Historical re-enactors in the stadium
  • Open concessions stands
  • VIP Meet & Greet
  • Live interview with Chris Jackson

Tickets for this event are $25 each, with special discounts available to VMHC Members and Flying Squirrels season ticket holders
A limited amount of VIP tickets will be available at $100 each, which will include a meet and greet with Chris Jackson, and special seating on the field for the fireworks.

Great use of the ballpark out of season and a perk for the season ticket holders.  This was done to coinciding with the arrival of HAMILTON at the Altria Theatre in Richmond and Chrysler Hall in Norfolk.
