Fans began lining up on Tuesday night at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton to purchase tickets for “Hamilton,” which went on sale at 8 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Tickets went on sale for “Hamilton” yesterday at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center. The PAC invited people to start lining up at 6 a.m., but many didn’t want to throw away their shot at getting tickets and were lined up long before. The first person in line arrived at 10 p.m. on Tuesday.

By 7 a.m. when the doors opened, hundreds of people were lined up around the building, trying to beat the 10 a.m. online ticket sales.

Upon entering the building, fans received a sheet of paper with a number, indicating their place in line. Once through security, they filed into the Kimberly-Clark Theater to fill out a sheet with their top three choices of “Hamilton” performances, including how many tickets they wanted and what section of the theater they wanted to sit in to expedite the ticket process. In groups of 50, they were moved backstage and then onto the stage in Thrivent Hall to purchase tickets. On their way out, excited fans posed in front of posters on stage that read “I got my tickets to Hamilton!”

“Hamilton” fans purchased their tickets on the stage of the PAC.

“Hamilton” is making its Wisconsin debut this fall in the Fox Cities and will stage 24 performances from Oct. 1-20. Ticket prices range from $85 to $299 and none of the performances are sold out yet. You can purchase tickets in person at the box office or online at ticketmaster.com. The PAC will not be taking phone calls until Friday. The center also will hold a lottery for each performance with details being released closer to the first show.
