The "Hamilton" party train just keeps rolling.

If you hadn't heard, a number of well-known local singers and actors are getting together to perform 10 songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda's incredibly popular Broadway musical, "Hamilton," on Saturday, July 1 at the Dogwood Dell at 8 p.m.

The free show, which features band leader Samson Trinh and a 26-piece orchestra and chorus, will feature one set of original jazz and pop with talented vocalist, Laura Ann Singh (Miramar, Quatro na Bossa). Set two will get the crowd rocking with 10 unannounced selections fro "Hamilton."
