- Theater-goers can enter for each performance until 9 a.m. on the day of the given show.
- Selected winners may purchase up to two tickets to the show.
- Participants must be age 18 or older and lottery seat location is subject to availability, per a Des Moines Performing Arts news release.
Participants can sign up to be alerted via mobile phone when each lottery opens.
“Dear Evan Hansen” runs Feb. 5-10 in downtown Des Moines. Regularly-priced tickets cost $40 to $225, per dmpa.org.
The show earned six Tony Awards in 2017, including Best Musical. The Grammy Award-winning cast album comes penned by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul of “La La Land” and “The Greatest Showman” fame.
More on the show, via dmpa.org: “A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he's always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.’
