Calling all Hamilton fans! Do you love the original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton so much that you belt it loud and proud each time you hear it? Have you tried to match the lightning-fast rhymes of Daveed Diggs?

For those that may not know, Hamilton is the story of America's founding father, Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War. Featuring a musical score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, Hamilton is the story of America then, as told by America now.
In advance of Hamilton’s Baltimore debut this summer, theatrical neighbors, the Hippodrome Theatre at the Franz Merrick Performing Arts Center and Everyman Theatre are joining forces to present "HAMILTUNES."
On Monday, June 24, Hamilton fans from across the state can attend the one-night-only event at Everyman Theatre for an evening of Hamilton-inspired karaoke. On the day of the event, attendees will be given access to a sign-up sheet, allowing them to choose a song where they can be the star. If you’re chosen, you’ll perform a solo, karaoke-style, along with a theater full of back-up singers.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and the karaoke starts at 6:30. There will be a cash bar available. Tickets to this event are $17.76, with all proceeds going to the Gilder Lehrman Institute for American History. Tickets are sure to sell out quickly, so be sure to purchase early. All tickets are available through EventBrite.
The following day, the touring cast of Hamilton makes its Baltimore debut at the Hippodrome, running from June 25 to July 21. Though tickets are sold out for many performances, and quite expensive for others, there are still ways to see this masterpiece for yourself. As is the case for each and every Hamilton performance, many $10 tickets are available via lottery. Check out the Hamilton app or the Hamilton website for more details.
Until that time, don’t throw away your shot to sing along with other die-hard Hamilton fans during this very fun event!
HAMILTUNES is being presented in conjunction with Everyman Theatre and the Hippodrome Franz Merrick Center for the Performing Arts through special licensing with Lin-Manuel Miranda and producers of Hamilton. Everyman Theatre is a specially licensed HAMILTUNES organization.
