Ever heard of this show “Hamilton”? Shamilton is just like that, but (ahem) better! Expect the same level of hip hop, incredible songs, stunning choreography and powerhouse singing… except made up on the spot!

Comedy supergroup Baby Wants Candy presents Shamilton!, the hit Hamilton-inspired hip hop musical created in 2016 in LA and now playing to sold out crowds in both NYC and LA.

Join the Shamilton cast as they improvise an epic musical based on a historical figure of your choosing — from Genghis Khan to Frederick Douglass to Kim Kardashian. It’s the show Lin-Manuel Miranda calls, “cease and desist!”

“One of the top 5 comedy shows to catch.”

Map + Directions

The Class of 1970 Theater is located on the ground level of Whitman College on the Princeton University campus.


Alexander Street, between Lawrence Drive in Princeton and Canal Pointe Boulevard in West Windsor, will close for about six months beginning on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, for road construction.

Construction makes traveling to campus more time consuming. Traffic congestion from all routes to campus during peak times (weekdays, 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.) will be higher than normal. Drivers traveling to campus along Route 1 will see the greatest delays.
