Broadway News   Watch the Cast of Groundhog Day Put Their Own Spin on the #Ham4All Challenge The company of the new Broadway musical brought Lin-Manuel Miranda's score to Punxsutawney.

The #Ham4All challenge continues as Broadway’s Groundhog Day releases a music video produced, written, and directed by cast members Raymond J. Lee and Travis Waldschmidt.

Challenged by Come From Away, the Tony-nominated musical based on the movie of the same name decided to perform their own take on Hamilton’s “My Shot” with lyrics from a mashup of songs from the Tim Minchin-penned musical. Their video, titled “Our Shot,” includes nods to Groundhog Day’s “Small Town, U.S.A.,” “If I Had My Time Again,” and “Night Will Come.”

Cast members Katy Geraghty, Taylor Iman Jones, Raymond J. Lee, Vishal Vaidya, Travis Waldschmidt provided vocals for the video, which was filmed by Jordan Grubb and Lee.

Lead cast members Barrett Doss and Tony nominee Andy Karl, who also perform in the video, then passed the challenge along to their composer-lyricist Minchin and the cast of Waitress.

Similar to the viral video ice bucket challenge, #Ham4All calls on participants to perform an excerpt of the Tony-winning and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical to raise money for Immigrants We Get the Job Done Coalition, an organization the channels funds to 12 different organizations that support and protect immigrants, refugees, and those seeking asylum in the United States.

With a $10 donation, participants are also entered to win a prize package for the opening night of Hamilton in Los Angeles, including a chance to meet Miranda himself.
