Coming to the Tivoli on Nov. 2, 2017,  The Price is Right Live™  is a stage show adaptation of the classic, family-friendly game show where excitement and prizes abound.  

This non-televised event mimics the show that has aired for decades with games such as Plinko™, Cliffhangers™, The Big Wheel™ and The Showcase. The prizes range big to small, giving the players a chance to win anything from home appliances to vacation packages. One participant even has the chance to win a new car.

The Price is Right is the longest running game show on television, originally airing in 1972. The live, traveling version of the show has been entertaining cities across the country for nearly 15 years and has given away over $10 million in prizes.

Those who are 18 or over and wish to try their luck must submit their registration card up to three hours before the show at the venue. No purchase of a ticket to the show is necessary to participate in the show itself. Contestants will be randomly selected backstage during the first 20 minutes of the show, which begins at 8 pm.

Hosting the show is Mark L. Walberg, who is no stranger to game shows. In his career, he has hosted and been featured on many game and quiz shows such as Shop Til You Drop, Burnt Toast on ESPN and The Weakest Link, where he won and donated his winnings to charity.

Walberg also has a love of Antiques Roadshow because it “has a winning formula: the excitement and challenge of finding out how much something is worth gets viewers to tune in, and along the way they get hooked by all the incredibly interesting history.”

Tickets are still available for purchase, ranging from $30 to $90, and can be found at Doors open at 7 p.m.
