You can still be in the room where it happens when Hamilton comes back to Dallas.
Tickets went on sale this morning on Ticketmaster.com and DallasSummerMusicals.org. The musical runs from November 16 to December 5 at the Music Hall at Fair Park. Ticket prices will range from $49 to $189 with the exception of premium seats, which start at $229. Each household is limited to eight tickets.
The President of Dallas Summer Musicals, Ken Novice, said that the organization always knew they wanted Hamilton to come back to Dallas.
“For us to bring a show back again just opens up the opportunity for more audiences to have the kind of experiences they can have with a show like Hamilton and others,” Novice said.
Sharing this art form with as many people as possible is very important to Novice. As part of their effort to increase access to musical theater, there will be a lottery with 40 $10 tickets for every performance.
“That’s something that we care deeply about: that the theater should not just be for those people who can afford the highest price ticket,” Novice said. “It’s an art form for everyone, and we want to make sure that that’s the case.”
Novice acknowledges that the high demand may cause people to turn to aftermarket ticket sellers, but he urges people to be careful since there are fraudulent sellers. Dallas Summer Musical recommends purchases be made directly through their site or on Ticketmaster to avoid risks.
In regards COVID-19 risks, Dallas Summer Musicals has updated their policies to allow contactless ticket scanning and security measures. The air filtration systems at Music Hall at Fair park have also been updated with state of the art MERV 13 filters.
Novice said it was a happy accident that, after a year without live theater, they were opening their season with Wicked and Hamilton. However, he hopes that the two blockbusters draw people back to the theater.
“We do this work because we believe that live theater has a place in society, whether it’s to entertain or to enlighten or just to have a couple hours to get outside of what you think about on a daily basis and have a different experience,” Novice said. “I’m just so grateful that these folks are so excited to come back and really want to come sit in the theater and have these experiences again.”
