Raleigh Now Spotlight: Hamiltunes

Can you spit mad Hamilton flows in the shower? Does your kid play Jefferson to your Hamilton in a minivan Cabinet Battle #1? Well, here’s your shot: Burning Coal Theatre Company is calling all Hamilton fans, or Hamily, to debut their home-honed rapping skills in Hamiltunes, An American Singalong. Hamiltunes is a karaoke presentation of the history-making musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda. While not officially associated with the Broadway production, Hamilton’s producers have authorized these free sing-along performances that give fans the opportunity to perform the part of a favorite character onstage before an enthusiastic live crowd. Ready to take your shot? Visit Burning Coal’s website and follow the link to sign up for a date and a character, then invite your Hamily to the show. Seating is limited, so reservations are highly recommended. Burning Coal’s mission is to present “theatre that is experienced– not simply seen” and Hamiltunes certainly fits the stage bill.  –Katherine Poole
