Be savvy when purchasing your 'Hamilton' tickets

If you have purchased tickets to an event at Wharton Center and received your tickets only to find that you paid far above the ticket price printed on the tickets, you may have purchased your tickets from a fraudulent website. With so many high-profile and popular events coming to Wharton Center, including "Hamilton," patrons can be exploited rather easily.

Oftentimes Wharton tickets are marketed on secondary ticket sites before the operator of the site has even purchased tickets — and they are being sold at prices far above the price you will pay through Wharton Center’s website.

If you purchase your tickets from a reseller, you risk paying too much for your tickets and/or buying invalid tickets. Furthermore, Wharton Center staff will not be able to assist you if there is a problem, and you will not receive any updates or special information regarding the performance.

To avoid buying tickets from a reseller, make sure to visit whartoncenter.com and bookmark Wharton's website. Fraudulent websites may use versions or part of the Wharton name in their web address, so it is important to note the actual site address.

Please also note that Wharton Center does not partner with any secondary ticketing company or reseller. Patrons are encouraged to sign up for the eClub on the Wharton website to receive information directly from Wharton Center.

Tickets for "Hamilton" go on sale tomorrow, March 23 at 10 a.m. Make sure you purchase yours at Wharton Center’s official ticketing outlets: online at whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office at Wharton Center or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
