AUSTIN, Texas — The musical “Hamilton” hits Austin next week, and one of the cast members of the show is an Austinite.

Alaina Vi Maderal is from the area, and her role for the show is a swing, which means she knows five different roles on the stage.

KVUE spoke to her about what it was like to find out she would be a part of the musical.

“I think about that often – it's truly indescribable, for sure. It was just a number of emotions and feelings just all wrapped into one moment,” she said. "And it definitely just felt like a dream come true."
