Are you hankering to see “Hamilton” but don’t want to dip into your child’s college fund to see the hit musical when it plays in Seattle?
Not to worry.
There will be 40 tickets in a digital lottery for most performances from Feb. 6 through March 18 — for $10 each.
Yes, you are reading that correctly.
Ten bucks. Well, if you get lucky.
And you can take your BFF. Lottery winners can buy two tickets.
The only catch is that you have to be able to go on a day’s notice.
It works like this:
The random drawing for the 40 orchestra seats starts with the first performance on Feb. 6 at The Paramount Theatre.
The lottery will start at 11 a.m. Feb. 4 for tickets to the Feb. 6 performance. Subsequent lotteries will begin two days prior to each show date at 11 a.m. and will close for entry at 9 a.m. the day before the performance. Winner and non-winner notifications will be sent by email or text around 11 a.m. the day before the show. Tickets must be purchased online by 4 p.m. or will be forfeited.
Tickets can be picked up starting 2 hours prior to the show. A valid photo ID is required. Patrons must be at least 18. Tickets are non-transferable and are void if resold.
Only one entry per person, per show. Repeat entries and disposable email addresses will be discarded. So don’t try to cheat. That would not be presidential.
Here’s how to enter:
Use the official “Hamilton” app, available for iOS and Android devices. You can also register at hamiltonmusical.com/lottery.
Hold your horses: The Seattle lottery will not go live until Feb. 4.
