The producers of Broadway's new musical comedy Gettin' the Band Back Together are giving 100 lucky theatergoers the chance to win a seat in the audience for the show while it's still in rehearsals. Enter to win a chance to observe the Broadway-bound cast in a rehearsal run-through on Friday, June 29, or Saturday, June 30, at a midtown location. Entries will be accepted until 11:59pm on June 27, and winners will be notified on June 28.

The production, which is directed by Tony Award winner John Rando and choreographed by Chris Bailey, will begin preview performances on July 19 at the Belasco Theatre, with the official opening set for August 13.

Gettin' The Band Back Together has music and lyrics by Mark Allen and a book by Ken Davenport and the Grundleshotz, with additional material by Sarah Saltzberg. The creative team includes Tony winners Derek McLane (scenic design), Emily Rebholz (costume design), Ken Billington (lighting design), John Shivers (sound design), music direction by Sonny Paladino, and casting by Eisenberg/Beans Casting.

The cast of Gettin' The Band Back Together features Mitchell Jarvis (Mitch Papadopoulos), Jay Klaitz (Bart Vickers), Manu Narayan (Dr. Rummesh "Robbie" Patel), Paul Whitty (Michael "Sully" Sullivan), Sawyer Nunes (Ricky "Bling" Goldstein), Marilu Henner (Mitch's Mom, Sharon Papadopoulos), Kelli Barrett (Dani), Becca Kötte (Tawney), Garth Kravits (Ritchie), Tamika Lawrence (Roxanne Velasco), Noa Solorio (Billie), and Brandon Williams (Tygen Billows). The ensemble will include Ryan Duncan, Nehal Joshi, J. Elaine Marcos, Rob Marnell, Jasmin Richardson, and Tad Wilson.

Gettin' the Band Back Together follows Mitch Papadopolous, who always dreamed about being the next Bon Jovi. However, he chose security over stardom and left those daydreams behind for a day job. For a while he thought he had everything — the high-paying job, the high-rise apartment — until his 40th birthday when he got handed a pink slip and had to move back in with his mom in Sayreville, New Jersey. When his high school arch nemesis threatens to foreclose on their house, this big-shot banker must save his small-town home the only way he can…by winning the Battle of the Bands. So he dusts off his guitar, gathers his old gang, and sets out to win the battle — and maybe even win back the high school sweetheart he left behind — proving it's never too late to give your dreams one last shot.
