The Tony Awards, in partnership with Audience Rewards, has announced the 2023 Official Tony Awards Challenge. Broadway fans have the opportunity to predict the winners of this year’s Tonys for a chance to win prizes.
While the program is free to join, players must be members of Audience Rewards to enter. The challenge begins on May 2 at 12 p.m. ET.
One grand prize winner, who guesses all 26 categories correctly, will receive a package (dubbed the Ultimate Broadway Fan Weekend) that includes travel and hotel stay in New York City, tickets to three Broadway shows of their choice, tickets to the Museum of Broadway and gift cards to select Theater District restaurants. Runners-up will receive a pair of tickets to a Broadway show of their choice.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Tony Awards to give Broadway fans everywhere the chance to guess the winners of this year’s Awards,” said Audience Rewards executive vice president Katie Dalton in a statement.
The 76th Annual Tony Awards will take place on June 11 at the United Palace in Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood. The event will begin with exclusive content streaming live on Pluto TV from 6:30 p.m. to 8.pm. ET. The ceremony will be broadcast beginning at 8 p.m. ET on CBS in addition to a livestream available on Paramount+.
Audience Rewards is the only loyalty program for Broadway. Founded in 2008, Audience Rewards allows fans to buy tickets through its website and earn “ShowPoints” on their purchases, which can then be redeemed for more tickets, Broadway merchandise and other experiences.
