Still want to see Hamilton? Digital lottery giving patrons chance to win $10 tickets
OKLAHOMA CITY – If you weren’t able to get your hands on one of the hottest tickets of the year, you may still be in luck!
The buzz began last year when OKC Broadway announced that its 2019 lineup would feature ‘Hamilton,’ one of the most popular shows on Broadway right now.
“Hamilton” follows the life of Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. It has become a beloved show, winning 11 Tony Awards in 2015.
‘Hamilton’ will be shown at the Civic Center Music Hall from July 30, 2019 through August 18, 2019.
Single tickets for Hamilton went on sale to the public on Friday, May 31 online and in person at the Civic Center Music Hall. Prices range from $70 to $185 for tickets. Officials say there will be a select number of $345 premium seats available for all performances.
If you don’t want to spend that much for tickets, you still have a chance to win tickets at a discounted rate.
Officials say a digital lottery for Hamilton tickets will begin in conjunction with the show’s first performance on July 30. In all, 40 tickets will be sold for every performance for $10 each.
Organizers say the digital lottery will open at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 28 for the Tuesday, July 30 performance. Subsequent digital lotteries will begin two days prior to each performance.
