Enter a ‘Hamilton’ lottery for a $10 ticket
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.
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.
