This is an announcement from Rabbanah Entertainment:
CALLING ALL HAMILFANS! – You can message us for inquiries, after you read this post.
(If you really want this, you will read the whole thing.)
Have you been memorizing ‘Guns and Ships’ from the hit musical ‘Hamilton’ these past few weeks? Rabbanah Entertainment will give you a chance to perform this masterpiece!
(WATCH: Cast of Broadway’s Hamilton Sings in Taglish!)
PROJECT: HAMILTON MNL
We too, are huge ‘Hamilton’ fans (HAMILFANS), so we organized this project that will gather hardcore Hamilfans across Manila!
Here’s the deal:
Our Production Team is willing to record the Opening Song, ‘Alexander Hamilton’, in our office studio and shoot a video of the track with the cast on stage. We have all the equipment, from microphones to cameras or sheet music to backing tracks.
All we need is the cast!
ALSO, THIS WILL BE A FRIENDSHIP PROJECT. WHICH MEANS THE ONES WHO WILL BE CAST, ARE WILLING TO DO IT FOR FREE – BUT, THE PROFESSIONAL RECORDING, MUSIC VIDEO, EXPERIENCE (YOU GAIN) AND OTHER LOGISTICS WILL BE ON US. So, we really are doing this for the love of the musical!

But here’s the catch:
Our end goal is to make the ‘Video’ viral and build a fanbase here in the Philippines. So, if it all goes well, we will be having long-term projects including FULL ALBUM RECORDINGS, A FUND-RAISER CONCERT, and (cross fingers) maybe PRODUCE THE SHOW HERE IN THE PHL!
