Another Broadway play comes to the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, Tennessee, beginning June 24, 2014 and running through June 29. The Musical, "The Book Of Mormon," which has won nine Tony Awards is offering some lucky audience members a chance to win lottery tickets for the performances. The lottery policy is described in a release from the theatre.
"THE BOOK OF MORMON, winner of nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, is pleased to announce a lottery ticket policy for the National Tour, which begins Tuesday, June 24th at The Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, TN and plays a limited one week engagement through June 29th. In Memphis, the production will conduct a pre-show lottery at the box office, making a limited number of tickets available at $25 apiece (cash only). This lottery will be held prior to every performance.
The wildly popular lottery for the Broadway production has attracted as many as 800 entries at some performances. The producers of THE BOOK OF MORMON are pleased to offer low-priced lottery seats for every city on the National Tour.
Entries will be accepted at the box office beginning two and a half hours prior to each performance; each person will print their name and the number of tickets (1 or 2) they wish to purchase on a card that is provided. Two hours before curtain, names will be drawn at random for a limited number of tickets priced at $25 each. Only one entry is allowed per person. Cards are checked for duplication prior to drawing. Winners must be present at the time of the drawing and show valid ID to purchase tickets. Limit one entry per person and two tickets per winner. Tickets are subject to availability."
