“Hamilton” fans are getting another chance to snap up dozens of $10 tickets for each show of the Denver touring stop.
Submissions for the #Ham4Ham ticket lottery, which usually accompanies each stop of the Tony-winning sensation, opened on Friday, Feb. 4, and close on Thursday, Feb. 10. They cover the opening, Feb. 16, performance of “Hamilton” at the Buell Theatre.
The digital-request period for subsequent shows will begin each Friday and close the following Thursday for the upcoming week’s performances, Denver Center for the Performing Arts officials said.
According to Denver’s Center website, the Feb. 16-March 27 run at the Buell is largely sold out, and only pricey (in the hundreds of dollars) tickets remain.
The lottery, however, dangles 40 tickets for each show for cash-strapped (or simply unlucky-in-buying) Broadway devotees. It follows a similar lottery that arrived with “Hamilton’s” first Denver stop in 2018 — almost exactly four years to the date of this year’s returning run.
Here are some tips on getting tickets, via the Denver Center. (Note: Only those 18-and-up can enter):
- Use the official app for “Hamilton,” available for all iOS and Android devices in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store
- The lottery opens at 10 a.m. every Friday and closes for entry at noon the next Thursday prior to the following week’s performances.
- Winner and “non-winner” notifications (the latter’s a hell of term, no?) will be sent between 1 and 4 p.m. every Thursday for the upcoming week’s performances via email and mobile push notification. Winners will have two hours to claim and pay for their ticket(s).
- No purchase or payment is necessary to enter or participate. Each winning entrant may purchase up to two (2) tickets.
- Only one entry per person. Repeat entries and disposable email addresses will be discarded.
- Lottery tickets may be picked up at will-call beginning two hours prior to the performance with a valid photo ID. Lottery tickets are void if resold.
