The News & Observer (Sunday) - - Arts Living - BY DAVID MENCONI dmen­coni@new­sob­server.com

So you want to see “Hamil­ton” but struck out on buy­ing tick­ets through the nor­mal chan­nels.

You still might have a shot with $10 lot­tery. Start­ing with the open­ing Nov. 6 show, there will be 40 tick­ets priced at $10 apiece for every per­for­mance avail­able through an on­line lot­tery. That means you have 32 op­por­tu­ni­ties be­tween Tues­day, Nov. 6, and Sun­day, Dec. 2 to en­ter.

Here is an over­view of the process, ac­cord­ing to the Durham Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter, and don’t for­get to read the fine print.

En­ter at

A hamil­ton­mu­si­cal.com/lot­tery or with the of­fi­cial “Hamil­ton” app, avail­able at the Google Play Store or iTunes Store. There is no cost to en­ter.

If you win, you can buy up to A two tick­ets at $10 each.

Each date’s en­try win­dow

A opens at 11 a.m. two days be­fore the show, and closes at 9 a.m. the day be­fore. The lot­tery is ran­dom, and the or­der you en­ter has no bear­ing on your chances of win­ning, so there’s no need to en­ter right at the stroke of 11 a.m.

Limit is one en­try per per­son A per day, and you must be 18 to en­ter.

All en­trants (both win­ners

A and non-win­ners) will re­ceive email or text no­ti­fi­ca­tions around 11 a.m. the day be­fore the per­for­mance.

Once in­formed, win­ners

A have un­til 4 p.m. that day (the day be­fore the per­for­mance) to make their pur­chase on­line with a credit card us­ing a cus­tom­ized link.

Note that the tick­ets may be A par­tial view, and you might not sit next to the per­son with the sec­ond ticket, ac­cord­ing to the “Hamil­ton” site.
