TAMPA, Fla. -- The Straz Center is offering a lottery to purchase $25 tickets to the "The Book of Mormon."
"The Book of Mormon" returns to Tampa's Straz Center on Tuesday, December 5. There will be eight performances through Sunday, including two weekend matinees.
The musical co-written by "South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker won nine Tony Awards, including the Best Musical of 2011.
The comedy tells the story of a pair of Mormon missionaries who are sent halfway across the world to northern Uganda when they will spread the Good Word for two years to villagers living in appalling conditions.
"The Book of Mormon" won accolades from hundreds of critics. The New York Times called it "the best musical of this century" while Entertainment Weekly described it as "the funniest musical of all time."
Regular ticket prices start at $63.75.
A pre-show lottery to win the right to purchase a pair of discounted $25 tickets to the musical will occur each day at the Straz Center Ticket Sales Office.
You can enter the lottery beginning two and a half hours prior to each performance. You will be asked to print your name and the number of tickets (1 or 2) you want to purchase on the provided card. Only one entry per person is allowed.
Two hours before curtain, names will be drawn at random for a limited number of tickets priced at $25 each. Winners must be present at the time of the drawing and show valid identification to purchase tickets.
