If you’re a musical theatre fan who’s also not a rich person, this might be your lucky day!
The aim of the lottery is to make theatre more accessible for people to attend shows, regardless of the sometimes lofty ticket prices. Even better, you can score bonus entries into the lottery if you share your participation on social media.
So how do you enter? All you need to do is download the TodayTix app, and enter the draw before 1pm. Then, the winners are announced between 1-6pm every Wednesday, offering winners access to some of the show’s hottest tickets for dirt cheap prices. Love that for them!
“We could not be more excited for the curtain to lift on the Tony Award-winning Moulin Rouge! The Musical in Melbourne after such a trying time,” said TodayTix CEO and Co-Founder Brian Fenty. “There’s no greater joy than haring the wonder of theatre with our audiences, and welcoming performers and creatives back to work.”
“Since pioneering the first-ever digital Lottery in 2014, we’ve worked to create effortless digital access programs, removing the barriers for accessible tickets to the world’s most coveted shows,” he continued. “Australian audiences have embraced our Lottery technology with open arms, so it made sense to launch an innovative new lottery technology with Moulin Rouge! The Musical, giving Australians the chance to immerse themselves in the magic of theatre at a more affordable price point.”
Carmen Pavlovic, the CEO of Global Creatures and Producer of Moulin Rouge! The Musical, added: “Moulin Rouge! The Musical is the first-ever Australian-produced musical to originate on Broadway, so it couldn’t feel more right to partner with TodayTix in Australia and offer the excitement of a Broadway-born digital Lottery in Melbourne, making our show more accessible to more people”.
Moulin Rouge! The Musical was nominated for 14 Tony Awards at the 2021 ceremony, taking home Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical for Danny Burstein as well as Best Costume, Scenic and Lighting Design for a Musical. It is the first Australian-produced musical to originate on Broadway and the hit show will have its Australian premiere at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre, with global productions set to open in London’s West End in November 2021 and Tokyo in 2023.
