Game show excitement is brought to the metro with the Price is Right Live!. A touring version of the long-standing television game show, the Price is Right Live! will be at the Omaha Music Hall on Oct. 8.
Host Todd Newton said the live stage show “is more a celebration of the TV show in general.” He added, “This is a big year for us, however, as the live version is celebrating a decade of lighting up stages across North America with game show magic.”
This game show brings more than magic. Contestants can “come on down” for a chance to win prizes such as, cash, kitchen appliances, vacations or a new car. Plinko, Cliffhangers and the Big Wheel are just a few of the games that help contestants win.
Those interested in becoming a contestant can visit the registration area, at or near the venue box office, three hours prior to show time.
Beginning at a theatre in Reno, Nev. the Price is Right Live! has brought excitement to audience members and contestants for 10 years. “What was initially meant to be a two-week casino run has now morphed into a ten-year theatre extravaganza,” Newton said. “And we’re not slowing down!”
Newton said his favorite part of hosting is being able to travel the country and “do what I love doing.” He added, “Game show hosting is in my blood; It’s my passion and my mission. I get to do it every night in front of 2,500 screaming fans. It gets no better than that.”
Tickets for the Price is Right Live! at the Omaha Music Hall on Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m. can be purchased through the Omaha CenturyLink Center box office.
