Are you going to Throw Away Your Shot?
Here are some tips to help you score tickets to the Orlando run of one of the hottest shows out of NYC-Hamilton!
I recently had a chance to talk with the staff at Dr Phillips Performing Arts Center about the ticket release for the upcoming run of Hamilton in Orlando. A lot of great info is out there, but I cannot stress these tips and important info for scoring tickets strong enough….
Box Office: yes or no?
Should you get in line at to try and get tickets on the 16th at the Dr Phillips Center (maybe even camp overnight)?
You can, but you should not. Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 16 at 9 a.m. “Most” tickets will be sold online at Dr Phillips Center. Due to unprecedented demand, we anticipate a high volume of people on November 16, so please take that into account when attempting to buy in person because the person in the box office will be doing exactly what you could be doing from your phone: buying them for you online. Same set up for them as it is for you. *Hot tip: Set up your account with your payment info included and fully set up in advance to the sale so you are ready to go!*
“Other” ticket sources?
What about the other sites selling tickets online with guarantees?
They are guaranteeing that they will try really hard to use the exact same system to get your tickets and they also guarantee that you pay way more than you would if you just trying to get them yourself. www.drphillipscenter.org is the ONLY authorized source for Hamilton tickets at Dr. Phillips Center. If you buy tickets from any other website, you are likely overpaying, may be buying invalid seats and Dr. Phillips Center cannot protect or guarantee your ticket will be accepted for entry. Our tickets range from $76.50 to $199.50 with a select number of $429.50 VIP seats available for all performances. Full details are available at drphillipscenter.org/Hamilton.
Online or box office only?
Remember above when I said “most” tickets will be sold online only? Here is the exception: A limited number of tickets will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis at Dr. Phillips Center. Your best chance to get tickets still will be on drphillipscenter.org/hamilton.
Any student discounts/lottery?
Student Rush won’t be available, however, there will be a lottery for forty $10 seats for all performances. More details will be available soon.
Do FAIRWINDS members get advance purchase?
There are no presales for Hamilton. At all. Tickets go on sale to everyone on Friday, November 16. If you are a lucky season subscription ticket holder, you already have your seat and you are probably not reading this.
The good news that all of this is that Orlando is not the first place to host this amazing show and hosted a ticket sale that will likely be out of control.
Fortunately for us, Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center has really learned from his predecessors and taking all of their experiences into consideration sure that the people who support this art center get a fair shot at tickets at a good price. They have a strong commitment to making sure that you get “your shot” without King George taking a cut as a middleman.
FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando 18/19 season subscriptions are currently at capacity.
Prices, shows, artists, dates and times are subject to change at any time without notice. Every guest entering the theater, including infants and children, requires a ticket. Children under the age of two are not permitted inside the theaters, unless noted otherwise. Parents should use discretion when deciding what shows are appropriate for their children.
Here is info you should know before you go courtesy of the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center staff!
Also, if you are interested, we will be hosting a Twitter chat in advance of all of the shows this season. Our Hamilton chat will be on Monday January 14th at 9pm EST. Follow me (@the_mother_hood) or the hashtag #OrlandoBroadwaySeries to join in!
