National Theatre Announces Ticket Lottery Program for Beetlejuice

From our friends at the National Theatre...

The National Theatre Announces Ticket Lottery Program for Beetlejuice and the Other Shows in the 2018-19 "Broadway at the National" Season

The National Theatre announces its ticket lottery program for the 2018-19 “Broadway at the National” season - starting with the pre-Broadway world premiere of Beetlejuice, onstage October 14 thru November 18, 2018. The National Theatre is located at 1321 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW in downtown Washington, DC.

Two hours prior to the start of all “Broadway at the National” performances this season, individuals may submit their names in person to be drawn to purchase up to two tickets at $25 per ticket (inclusive of all fees.) 20 Lottery seats will be available for each “Broadway” series performance during the 2018-19 season. Names will be announced 30 minutes after the entry period (90 minutes prior to the show.) Individuals must be present, with cash, to redeem the offer.

In addition to Beetlejuice, the Ticket Lottery will take place for “Broadway at the National” performances of:

Beautiful - The Carole King Musical (November 27 - December 30, 2018),

School of Rock - The Musical (January 16-27, 2019),

Finding Neverland (February 26 - March 3, 2019),

A Bronx Tale (March 26-31, 2019),

Stomp (April 23-28, 2019), and

• Jim Steinman’s Bat Out of Hell - The Musical (May 7-26, 2019.)

Beetlejuice stars Tony Award nominee Alex Brightman (Broadway’s School of Rock) as ‘Beetlejuice,’ two-time Lortel Award nominee Sophia Anne Caruso (Lazarus) as ‘Lydia,’ Tony Award nominee Kerry Butler (Mean Girls) as ‘Barbara,’ Tony Award nominee Rob McClure (Something Rotten!) as ‘Adam,’ Obie Award winner Adam Dannheisser (Rock Of Ages) as ‘Charles,’ two-time Drama Desk Award nominee Leslie Kritzer (The Robber Bridgegroom) as ‘Delia,’ Jill Abramovitz (Fiddler on the Roof) as ‘Maxine Dean’ and ‘Mrs. Shoggoth,’ Danny Rutigliano (Holiday Inn) as ‘Maxie Dean’ and Kelvin Moon Loh (SpongeBob SquarePants The Musical) as ‘Otho.’

Beetlejuice is directed by Alex Timbers (Moulin Rouge!) and features choreography by Connor Gallagher (The Robber Bridegroom), an original score by Eddie Perfect (King Kong) and a book by Scott Brown and Emmy Award nominee Anthony King (Broad City.) It is based on the 1988 Academy Award-winning Geffen Company motion picture with story by Michael McDowell and Larry Wilson.

Parental discretion is advised. Beetlejuice contains strong language, mature references, and a lot of the crazy, inappropriate stuff you would expect from a deranged demon.
