Center Theatre Group is establishing a special daily lottery program for the run of Green Day’s explosive Broadway hit musical American Idiot, presented at the CTG/Ahmanson Theatre March 13 through April 22, 2012.

Patrons who enter the lottery will have the opportunity to purchase a pair of tickets at only $30.00 per ticket to sit in the first two rows of the orchestra seating section.

Additionally, those who don’t win the daily lottery will be automatically included in a second chance “loser’s lottery” for complimentary tickets to the final Saturday night (April 21 at 8 p.m.) performance.

Lottery registration begins each day when the CTG box office opens (Tuesday through Saturday at noon; Sunday at 11 a.m.) and continues throughout the day. The box office will randomly draw names starting 90 minutes prior to the performance(s). Patrons must be present at the time of the drawing and ID will be required.

The drawing for the “loser’s lottery” will take place on Monday, April 16. The winners do not need to present and will be notified by CTG. All winners of this final lottery will receive their seats free of charge.
