Tickets to a touring Broadway show can be pretty darn pricey, especially if you're interested in having a good view of the stage. If you're interested in catching a performance of "Wicked," consider putting your name in the daily lottery for $25 orchestra tickets.

Each day the show runs (July 28-Aug. 29), people can head to the Galbreath Pavilion entrance of the Ohio Theatre two and a half hours before the performance to add their names to the lottery drum. Half an hour later, the winners will be announced.

The lottery is a pretty sweet deal, considering orchestra seats usually cost $127.50 or more.
