Cincinnati Hamilton Ticket FAQ

Tickets go on sale Friday, November 16 at 9am.

Online is the fastest way to purchase tickets. The Cincinnati Arts Association website,, is the only official website selling single tickets for HAMILTON performances at the Aronoff Center. Any other website selling tickets to HAMILTON will be a broker or reseller and will charge you more than regular ticket prices. We cannot guarantee that tickets purchased through a ticket broker or reseller are valid, and therefore the Aronoff Center Ticket Office cannot assist guests who purchase through brokers if there are any problems with tickets.

Process for buying online:

  • ●  Visit on a computer, tablet, or smartphone on Friday, November 16, before 8:59 AM.
  • ●  You will enter the virtual waiting room.
  • ●  At 9am, everyone who is in the waiting room will be randomly assigned a place in the queue.
  • ●  After 9am, new people entering the waiting room will be added at the end of the queue.
  • ●  If you are still in the queue when inventory is scarce and/or tickets sell out, you will be notified with a message on your screen.

Please have your Cincinnati Arts Association account information handy. If you don't already have an account and password, set this up before November 16 to save time when the tickets go on sale. This information will help you log in quickly so you can order your HAMILTON tickets. If you need to create an account, please visit

Now, buy tickets! Once you reach the buying page, you have 8 minutes to complete your purchase. You cannot select specific seats on an interactive map, but you will be able to choose from seating areas and prices. You are allowed four (4) tickets per household and all sales are final. Review and confirm your performance date and time before you purchase; there are no refunds or exchanges.

In-person sales.  Ticket availability at the box office will be limited. Visit the Aronoff Center Ticket Office to purchase HAMILTON tickets in person at 650 Walnut Street, downtown Cincinnati. The line at the Aronoff Center will open at 7:30am at the entrance located at the corner of 7th and Walnut Streets.  Guests in line will be issued a numbered wristband, distributed in order, beginning at 7:30am.  Guests will then proceed through a security check, and will be allowed to wait in the Aronoff lobby or in the Procter & Gamble Hall.  Ticket Office sales will begin at 9am, with a very limited number of tickets. No camping out is permitted outside the Aronoff Center prior to the on sale.

If any guest leaves the Aronoff Center while waiting in line they lose their place. Concessions will be available for purchase. Numbered groups will be called in order at regular intervals to make their purchases at the ticket office windows.

Phone sales.  Tickets will not be available by phone on November 16th.

Be prepared with several choices of performance dates, times, and prices, just in case your first choice sells out, as we expect high demand for tickets.  Best ticket availability is for performances March 5-10, 2019.

Ticket limits will apply. HAMILTON has a ticket limit of four (4) tickets per household address, billing address, or credit card number to allow as many people as possible to see the show. After all available tickets are sold, online purchases will be reviewed, and any purchases that violate the HAMILTON ticket limit, based on full household account information, will be canceled without notice.

Gift Certificates. Cincinnati Arts Association Gift Certificates are redeemable for purchase at the Aronoff Center Ticket Office. Gift Certificates are not directly redeemable online, but you can receive a reimbursement after your purchase.  Please contact Ticketing Services following the on-sale at to receive a credit.

When will I get my tickets? HAMILTON tickets purchased online will be delivered by mail or by mobile delivery. Tickets will be mailed by December 14. If you choose mobile delivery for tickets purchased online, you will receive those via email on December 14. HAMILTON tickets purchased directly at the Ticket Office will be available immediately at time of purchase.

Ticket Security. Each ticket has a one-of-a-kind barcode. Never share photos of the barcode on your tickets—especially on social media! If you post a picture of your ticket that shows the barcode, someone could steal your barcode and use it to get in to the theater. Only the first set of tickets that gets scanned will be allowed through the doors.

Tips for sharing your excitement:

  • ●  Cover the barcode with your finger when you take a picture.
  • ●  Black out the barcode on the picture. (Do not black it out on the tickets as you won’t be able to use them!)
  • ●  Take a close-up shot of the tickets that shows only the name of the show and the theater.
