Hamilton Lottery Announced for Minneapolis at Hennepin Theatre Trust


The biggest cultural phenomenon is heading to the Twin Cities this August through October for a six week run at the historic Orpheum Theatre off Hennepin Ave in Minneapolis. While tickets have been on sale now for a few weeks (and can be pretty expensive), many missed their chance or 'threw away through shot' to get these coveted seats. However I am here to say there is another way to see this multi-Tony award winning show and the answer is in the palm of your hand.

Starting with the show's first performance on Wednesday, August 29, there will be a total of 40 tickets that will be sold for every performance through their digital lottery. The #HAM4HAM Lottery will offer patrons $10 tickets and each winning entrant may purchase up to two tickets. and here is everything you need to know on how to enter.

How to Enter

  • Winner and non-winner notifications will be sent approximately 11 a.m. CT the day prior to the performance via email and SMS (if mobile number is provided...I highly suggest providing)
  • No purchase or payment is necessary to enter or participate. 
  • Only one entry per person.. Repeat entries and disposable email addresses will be discarded.

don't throw away your shot!

This is by far the best deal in getting HAMILTON tickets. While it's a gamble and a lottery, you still could have a great shot at getting seats for a low price. The perks are anyone (with a few limitations) can enter and you can enter straight from the comfort of your own home everyday. No need to wait outside in a rush line or to go down to Hennepin Ave.
