CENTER THEATRE GROUP PARTNERS WITH TODAYTIX TO LAUNCH MOBILE LOTTERY IN CELEBRATION OF 50TH ANNIVERSARY
Center Theatre Group has partnered with TodayTix to launch a Mobile Lottery for the Ahmanson 2016/17 Season. In honor of Center Theatre Group’s 50th Anniversary, TodayTix will offer $19.67 lottery tickets all season long at the Ahmanson Theatre to celebrate the year Center Theatre Group was born.
TodayTix will run the Mobile Lottery for Center Theatre Group’s 2016/17 Season at the Ahmanson Theatre including the following productions: “A View From the Bridge,” “Amelie, A New Musical,” “Fun Home,” “Into the Woods,” “Jersey Boys,” and “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.”
The daily Mobile Lottery will begin each night at midnight and close five hours before the designated performance. Lottery winners will be notified 3-5 hours prior to the performance and will have 30 minutes to claim and pay for their $19.67 lottery tickets in-app. Lottery winners will then be able to pick up their tickets from the Box Office beginning one hour prior to the performance.
Mobile Lottery participants must download the TodayTix app from the Apple Store, Google Play Store, or Amazon App Store and enter the Mobile Lottery in-app to win up to two tickets. The lottery ticket locations will be best available in a premium seating section. Winners and non-winners will receive confirmation emails, and non-winners will be encouraged to enter future lotteries or purchase non-lottery tickets at an exclusive discount. The Mobile Lottery launched September 22 for the Friday evening performance of “A View From the Bridge” and runs through the final performance of the Ahmanson 2016/17 Season. The Mobile Lottery will exclude all matinee performances.
"Center Theatre Group is thrilled to partner with TodayTix for our 50th anniversary season,” said Deborah Warren, Center Theatre Group’s Director of Marketing, “We hope that this enables more people to experience the incredible productions we have coming up at the Ahmanson Theatre – including six award-winning new plays, musicals, and beloved classics.”
