Yes, You Can Watch The Cast Of 'Hamilton' Perform At The White House

#Bam4Ham

In case you haven't heard, "Hamilton," the Broadway musical that combines hip hop and history to tell the tale of the titular Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton, is vacationing at the White House. 

In a recent #Ham4Ham video, writer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda announced the March 14 trip to Washington, D.C. 

"The entire cast of 'Hamilton,' we're all going,” Miranda explained in the video. “We're going to be trying out our educational program with some kids; we're going to do a concert for the First Family; and we're going to shoot so many Ham4Ham videos in there -- you have no idea what's about to hit you."

For those of us not invited to the coveted "Hamilton" event, fear not. According to Broadway World, the White House will be live-streaming the president's remarks and the opening number of the performance at 5:30 p.m. ET. According to the "Hamilton" Twitter handle, the cast is already there, posting updates under the hashtag #Bam4Ham. 

During the cast's stay, Michelle and Barack Obama will introduce the stars to the White House crowd before they perform a selection of songs from their show and host a Q&A and student workshop. The cast will likely discuss the $1.46 million program that provides “Hamilton” tickets to New York City public school students at a cost of just $10 per person, as well as the mini “Hamilton” curriculum that will incorporate studies and performances for history students and teachers. 

Stay tuned for more #Ham4Ham videos -- the digital version of the skits "Hamilton" cast members perform for lottery ticket hopefuls waiting in line in New York City -- on the musical's YouTube channel. In the meantime, check out the #Bam4Ham photos hitting Instagram already. 

Bonus -- at 1:45 p.m. ET, you can watch the first lady officially welcome the cast. Who knew you'd be watching so much White House Live today?
