What are ticket lotteries?

They're exactly what you think they are! You'll enter a drawing and winners will be randomly selected to receive amazing seats. Ticket lotteries are free to enter, and you will only have to pay if you have been selected as a winner and you want to secure your seats!

Here're a few pointers on how to become a lucky lotto winner:

  • Enter into a drawing by providing some personal info, the number of tickets you'd like to win, and the performance you'd like to win tickets for. For daily draws, you will only be eligible to win tickets for performances happening that day. 
  • Once you've entered, you'll have to wait until the drawing to find out if you've been lucky!
  • If you've been selected as a winner - woohoo! You'll typically be notified about your win by email. You'll have a limited time from the point you're notified to pay for & secure your tickets - if you don't pay in time, the tickets will be redistributed to an entrant on the waiting list. 
  • Be sure to check the maximum number of tickets available to purchase - most shows only allow you to buy 2 lottery tickets per customer
  • Be sure you're purchasing tickets for the right show title, date & time - especially on days where there are matinee (afternoon) and evening performances! Vendors usually cannot exchange or refund lottery tickets once they have been purchased!
