Hillary Clinton supporters will have the opportunity to both support their presidential hopeful and catch a performance of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton

On July 12, Clinton and the Hamilton cast have arranged an additional matinee to assist in fundraising for Clinton’s presidential run. The 11:30 a.m. showing is titled “Hamilton: An American Musical with Special Guest Hillary Rodham Clinton.” Ticket prices for general seating start at $2,700 (the maximum an individual can contribute directly to a presidential campaign). From there, tickets go up to $100,000, which includes “two Premium seats and Wrap Party with Hillary and other special guests, and Invitation to the Democratic National Convention,” according to Clinton’s website.

As The Hollywood Reporter notes, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and co-stars Phillipa Soo and Leslie Odom, Jr. will most likely not perform as they are leaving the cast.
