Hamilton Happy Hour: The Room Where It's Happening
by Brookelynn Mason
Want to win Hamilton tickets while being surrounded by like-minded fans, raise money for Eliza's oooooooorphanage Graham Windham, and maybe (probably) having one too many drinks?
Gillian Pensavalle of The Hamilcast, an American podcast about an American musical about a bastard orphan, is making your dreams come true! She is teaming up with Patrick Hinds (Theatre People Podcast) to deliver delicious cocktails and shots--that you shouldn't throw away!--to loosen you up for an entertaining night at Offside Tavern on Saturday, August 12th.
Drinks, a fundraiser raffle for Hamilton tickets, and all-night listening to the Hamilton cast recording and the Hamilton Mixtape not enough to reel you in? Good news! In addition to the Graham Windham ticket raffle, The Hamilcast is partnering with Freedom Farm Animal Rescue to also raffle signed props straight from the Broadway production itself and a signed playbill. Want a piece of the show (such as "note for your next of kin")? Now's your chance. "Being able to unabashedly sing and dance with fellow Hamilfans is going to be a dream come true," says Hamilcast host Gillian. "And hopefully, it won't be the last time--this might become a pastime!"
The Hamilcast is a fan-run podcast about Hamilton: an American Musical. It is touted as THE Hamilton podcast to listen to by cast members and fans alike, and has listeners in over 100 countries. For more information on Hamilton Happy Hour, click below.
