How does the MARY POPPINS Lottery work?
You can enter the MARY POPPINS Lottery exclusively on the TodayTix mobile app (available on the App Store and Google Play Store).
No purchase or payment is necessary to enter the Lottery. To enter the Lottery you must either reside in Australia and/or be able to attend the relevant scheduled performance in Melbourne and be aged 18 years or older at the time of entry.
You can enter for the chance to purchase up to two exclusive $40 tickets beginning each Friday at 12:01am (AEDT). Choosing to enter for either one (1) or two (2) tickets at any one performance of the MARY POPPINS Lottery holds no bearing on your chances of being drawn as a winner.

How much are tickets purchased through the MARY POPPINS Lottery?
Winners pay $40 per ticket. Winners are eligible for up to a maximum of 2 tickets subject to the entry.
How can I change my lottery entry?
If you need to update your entry name or email address before the drawing begins, you can do so by navigating to "My Orders," locating your lottery entry, and selecting "Options." This menu will be available until just before the lottery begins selecting winners. Once the lottery begins selecting winners on Thursday at 1:00 PM, we are unable to modify entries in any way. This includes changing the name, phone number, email address, number of tickets, or dates entered. We, unfortunately, cannot edit the number of tickets associated with your entry to protect the integrity of the lottery.
Where are seats purchased through the MARY POPPINS Lottery located at Her Majesty's Theatre?
Seating is assigned directly by the box office and can be located anywhere in the theatre. Seating is not first-come, first-served; the box office will assign your seats after the lottery has completed. Please note that on occasion, lottery seats may not be sat together.
I've entered the lottery, but will have accessible seating requirements should I win the chance to purchase these tickets.
We're here to help with your accessibility requests and pass on any relevant information to the box office on your behalf. If you've won the chance to purchase lottery tickets and have completed the checkout process, please contact us by using the "Submit a Ticket" button above or email directly to AUSsupport@todaytix.com no later than one hour after completing checkout to detail how we can assist. If you or your guest are a Companion Card holder, please complete checkout for two lottery tickets and immediately contact us with your Companion Card number to learn about how you will be reimbursed.
Can I give my MARY POPPINS Lottery tickets to someone else?
Tickets purchased as part of the Lottery are non-transferrable and cannot be returned, exchanged, or resold. The contact information must match a valid photo ID of the listed purchaser. Photo ID matching the pick-up name must be presented to the box office in order to collect your tickets.
How do I know if I won?
If you're a winner, TodayTix will send you an email and/or SMS notification! You will have 1hr to claim your tickets. You can also always check to see the status of your entry by navigating to the "My Orders" section of your account, which shows your status in real time.
What happens if I'm not selected as a winner?
We encourage you to enter for future! You can always set an alert to be reminded when the lottery will begin accepting entries again. Click here to learn more about Alert Me Notifications.
My time to claim winning MARY POPPINS Lottery tickets expired, what do I do?
If your time to claim has expired, our lottery system will automatically choose another winner. However, this will not affect your chances for winning in the future, so we encourage you to keep entering!
