Hamilton Tickets in Durham
The big drama in the Triangle is the huge demand for tickets to see “Hamilton” in its first Durham run, at Durham Performing Arts Center, from November 6th, to December 2nd, 2018.
However, if you are not among the lucky who snagged tickets, don’t give up hope! 40 tickets at $10 each are available for each performance via a digital lottery.
You should know that 3rd party ticket sellers are a bad idea. The tickets may not be valid. And do keep checking back on DPAC, as tickets sometimes do become available.
But, know that this digital lottery is straight from Hamilton. The musical stipulates that in every city a certain number of low-priced tickets are available through this digital lottery.
The digital lottery for “Hamilton” tickets will begin with the show’s first performance on November 6th, 2018, at Durham Performing Arts Center. Forty orchestra tickets will be sold for every performance at $10 each. The digital lottery opens at 11 a.m. on November 4th for tickets to the first performance.
Each following digital lottery begins two days prior to each performance. You must enter each lottery (and you can only enter once each time) — that means you can enter 32 times in total. All times are Eastern Standard Time.
