    The Trust asserts that the most reliable way to purchase tickets is through TrustArts.org.

    Join the online waiting room at TrustArts.org/Hamilton before 9 a.m. Your place in the queue will be randomized. After 9 a.m., you will be placed at the end of the queue.


    Have three performance dates that you would like to attend in mind in case your first choice is not available. There is a maximum purchase limit of four tickets per account.

    Don’t waste time calling the Trust for tickets. You can’t order tickets that way.
    There will be some limited tickets available at the Box Office at Theater Square at 655 Penn Avenue on Monday at 9 a.m., but you cannot wait in line before 6 a.m.
    The Cultural Trust will also have a lottery for 40 $10 seats for all performances. More details will be released soon.
