TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

If you want to see the smash hit “Hamilton” at Gammage Auditorium in February, you need to take action now.

A limited number of tickets go on sale Monday, but to have even a shot at getting them, you have to register for a new TicketMaster program called Verified Fan now. Like today.

Verified Fan is designed to give fans the opportunity to get tickets without competing against scalpers and bots.

"Verified Fan is the newest program to make tickets available to theatre-goers at regular prices,” “Hamilton” producer Jeffrey Seller said. “I am confident that it will be a valuable service to our fans. We know how challenging it is to buy tickets and this new Ticketmaster program will make the process a whole lot easier."

Verified Fan registration for “Hamilton” – easily one of the hottest tickets in town – opened Tuesday morning and runs through 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 7.

Registration, however, does not guarantee, that you will get an access code to buy tickets.

“Those who registered will be notified by Ticketmaster via email on Sunday, Dec. 10 if they have been selected for the Verified Fan on sale,” according to a news release from ASU Gammage and Broadway Across America. “The Ticketmaster Verified Fan on sale will be available for purchases online only.”

If you do get a code, you still need to be ready to move quickly. While a code gives you access to tickets, they are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are not guaranteed.

"Ticketmaster Verified Fan is a tremendous advance in ensuring that real patrons have access to tickets and we value the innovative approach that put fans first,” Colleen Jennings-Roggensack the executive director of ASU Gammage and ASU vice president for cultural affairs, said.
