The producers of the smash-hit musical “Hamilton” are offering dozens of $10 tickets each day for much of its run at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre.
Forty tickets will be distributed via a lottery system two days before each performance and cannot be resold. The shows start Feb. 6 and run through March 18, though tickets will not be available for the Feb. 15 evening performance and the March 8 and March 14 matinees.
The lotteries start two days before each performance, beginning Feb. 4 at 11 a.m., with registration closing at 9 a.m. the day before each show. Ticket-seekers can register at the show’s website, hamiltonmusical.com/lottery, or through the “Hamilton” phone app, which is available on Android and Apple operating systems. Winners will be notified by email or text.
Only one entry is allowed per person for each show, and repeat entries will be discarded. Tickets are only available to people over the age of 18 who have valid photo identification, and they are non-transferable.
“Hamilton,” written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, chronicles the life of Alexander Hamilton, the first treasury secretary of the United States. The original Broadway production won 11 Tony Awards in 2016, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score. Hamilton’s face graces the $10 bill, hence the price for the lottery tickets.
Full rules are available at the “Hamilton” website.
