      If you’ve ever spent a two-plus hour road trip (badly) shouting along to the score from Hamilton, this one’s for you. 

      F7 Entertainment Group is bringing a Musical Theatre Dance Party (which is exactly what it sounds like) to Vancouver’s Hollywood Theatre on April 27. 

      According to the event’s Facebook page, the night will feature songs from Hamilton, Wicked, Rent, Hairspray, and Les Mis, to name just a few. DJs will also be taking requests throughout the night. 

      “Calling all musical theatre nerds, drama geeks, actors, actresses, theatre lovers, and more,” reads the Broadway Rave website. “Welcome to Broadway Rave, a Broadway dance party celebrating the best in show tunes and musical theatre. Come sing along to all of your favorite Broadway hits while dressed up as your favorite character.”

      Broadway Rave is a touring event and is hitting a number of cities across the U.S. in the coming months—Vancouver's event is, apparently, the only Canadian stop in the foreseeable future. But if you’re eager for a double dose of Dear Evan Hansen’s greatest hits, there’s also a show at Seattle’s The Crocodile on Saturday, April 22. 

      Sure, it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. But videos from the Broadway Rave’s socials depict some enthusiastic singalongs, pretty packed crowds, and, dare we say, one helluva night. 

      We might not pull out the green face paint to go full Wicked, but we’ll be damned if shouting along to “Seasons of Love” at the Hollywood Theatre doesn’t sound like a memorable time. 

      Broadway Rave’s Musical Theatre Dance Party is on Thursday, April 27 at the Hollywood Theatre from 9pm to 1am. Tickets are available at ShowPass for $32
