This Toronto version of Hamilton musical will blow you away

Hamilton (the musical) might be making its way to Toronto, but as CBC reports, it's already here. That's because the young, scrappy and hungry students at the Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts in Scarborough are putting the show in front of a crowd.

They've posted unauthorized snippets of the Tony Award-winning musical to YouTube, but as CBC notes, they want to get permission to become the first high school to ever perform an official version of the show.

Their take on the song "Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)" is particularly impressive and is definitely worth a watch.

Like most of the world, CBC writes that the students at Wexford Collegiate are particularly enamoured with the diversity inherent in Lin-Manuel Miranda's work.

But really, who isn't going ham for Ham right now?
