You are not throwing away your shot.

Hey yo, if you’re unlike much of the country:

You’re a singer, rapper and actor.

Then you should not throw away your shot.

The mega-hit Broadway musical “Hamilton” is holding auditions for its national touring production, so here’s your chance to blow us all away with your talent.

The best part? Auditions are via email, so you don’t have to wait for them to come to your town.

Instead, send your submission to [email protected] and include the following:

  • An unlisted YouTube page or Vimeo link with brief videos of you rapping and singing a pop/rock song.
  • An up-to-date photo and a resume that includes your height and weight.
  • Contact and location information and your date of birth if you’re under 18.
  • Optional: Signing your email “Your Obedient Servant.”
