When it comes to ticket lotteries to score you budget-friendly seats to smash-hit stage musicals in Melbourne, it really is beginning to feel like a tale as old as time. Mary Poppins had one. Hamilton did as well, plus Moulin Rouge!, too. The next on the list: Disney's Beauty and the Beast: The Musical, which wants you to be its guest for cheap.

How cheap? For just $24 a seat via TodayTix, which has been behind past Melbourne lotteries. The first chance to head along at a significant discount opened on Friday, June 14, and will close at 1pm on Friday, June 21 — with winners advised each Friday for the coming week's performances. After the first round, the lottery will open on Saturdays at 12.01am weekly.

For every single Melbourne show, there'll be 24 of the $24 tickets available.

Disney's Beauty and the Beast musical is headed to Melbourne's Her Majesty's Theatre from Thursday, June 27, on its latest stop Down Under as a newly reimagined and redesigned production. Playing until November at least, this Beauty and the Beast first made its way to the stage in the UK in 2021, and reworks the original show that premiered in the US in the 90s — adapting Disney's hit 1991 animated movie musical, of course.

Fans can expect the same Oscar-winning and Tony-nominated score courtesy of composer Alan Menken and lyricist Tim Rice, including all the beloved tunes such as 'Be Our Guest' and 'Beauty and the Beast'. It also comes with new dance arrangements by David Chase, and with original choreographer Matt West revisiting his work.

And yes, that $24 price is accurate. Yes, this is your chance to see the acclaimed production for less than the price of a dinner (and, at some places, breakfast and lunch). To take part in the lottery, you will need to download the TodayTix app, which is available for iOS and Android. And if your name is selected, you'll have an hour to claim your tickets from when you receive the good news.

If you need a reminder, you can also sign up for lottery alerts via TodayTix, too.
