TAMPA | Producer Jeffrey Seller and the Straz Center for the Performing Arts announced Jan. 31 that a digital lottery for “Hamilton” tickets will begin in conjunction with the popular production’s opening night in Tampa Feb. 12.
The musical details the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War. It features a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Forty tickets will be sold for every Tampa performance during its Feb. 12-March 10 run for $10 each. To enter the lottery, theatergoers need to visit the show’s website to register or use the official “Hamilton” app, available in the Apple App or Google Play stores.
The lottery will open at 11 a.m. on Feb. 10 for tickets to the Feb. 12 performance. Subsequent lotteries will begin two days prior to each performance date and will close at 9 a.m. the day prior to the performance.
Winners and non-winners will be notified of the results at 11 a.m. the day prior to the performance and each winning entrant may purchase up to two tickets.
