Omaha fans of the Broadway production of 'Hamilton' will finally get a chance to purchase tickets on Wednesday, July 17.
Omaha Performing Arts has announced they will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. at the Ticket Omaha box office inside the Holland Center at 12th and Douglas or here .
There will not be any tickets available that day by phone. Omaha Performing Arts officials have released some specific information about ticket purchases.
- Each household can purchase a maximum of four tickets to the production.
- Prices range from $75 to $195, with a limited number of $350 premium seats available for each performance.
- Forty $10 seats for each performance will be sold through a lottery. Details will be revealed closer to first night of the performance.
Omaha Performing Arts officials expect a line at the Holland Center the morning of July 17. Ticket buyers must remain in line to guarantee their place. People will be given a wristband, but will have to surrender it if they leave.
Only those with a wristband will be allowed to buy tickets, but having a wristband won't guarantee you will get tickets for your preferred date and price level. Officials say no camping or line-holding will be allowed.
Due to extremely high web traffic, a virtual waiting room will be in place to allow a steady flow of ticket sales throughout the day. A spot in the queue does not guarantee a purchase.
"Hamilton" will run from September 10-29 at the Orpheum Theatre. The hit Broadway musical is 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 and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. It features a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway.
