We are 3 fifth graders from New York City. We are OBSESSED with the show Hamilton! We learned all the songs. We made up our own choreography. We sing the songs ALL THE TIME, for each other or for anyone who will listen. (We drive our parents crazy!) But we think we've gotten really good. We got the idea of creating a Hamilton fan zine about our biggest passion so that others can learn all things Hamiltonian. We will create two versions of the zine of our HAMILTON EXPERIENCE, online and hardcover zines. (Our English teacher is helping us!) It won't be complete if we don't see the show. But the tickets are over $1000! We ran a lemonade stand and performed on the street but that wasn't going to get us $3,000.

So we are bringing it to Kickstarter, people! The funds we raise will go to costs of tickets and to produce an AWESOME Hamilton Experience zine we call The Hamilton Diaries! 

When we made our video for Kickstarter in front of the theater the most amazing thing happened! We met our HERO Lin-Manuel Miranda creator and star of Hamilton, when he came out of the stage door and watched us perform. (Faint!) Other cast members came out, too, and watched. They were in their costumes on the way to rehearsal for the Tony Awards! They won 11 Tony awards that same night! We were even on the news about it!

We want to share our experience with YOU! The Hamilton Diaries will be photos and stories and drawings to get everyone excited about this amazing show, the characters who are a part of it and the real people behind it. You will have fun reading about our HAMILTON EXPERIENCE and just like us, you will learn a lot of history along the way. 

Just like Hamilton says, people, "We are not throwing away our shot!"

Risks and challenges

We told our parents we would make the money ourselves to see the show and produce the Hamilton Diaries. So the biggest challenge is raising money for a show everyone wants to see and is almost sold out. And the biggest risk is not seeing the show because the Hamilton Diaries will be so much better if we see it! We will not stop trying.
