Price is Right

A traveling version of ‘The Price is Right’ will include most of the elements of the TV game show, except host Drew Carey and television cameras.

Contestants don’t need an audience ticket for a chance to “come on down” and play “The Price is Right Live” April 16 at The Playhouse on Rodney Square in Wilmington.

That’s good news for fans of the popular game show, as tickets are quickly selling out, said Daniel Palmieri, director of sales and marketing for The Playhouse.

“Two hours before the show, people can come register to participate, no purchase necessary,” Palmieri said.

He said non-ticket holders would have to wait in the lobby. If selected, show staff will bring them on stage.

Participants who are not in the audience will have to leave the auditorium once their game is completed. 

“The show tries to keep it as fast as possible,” Palmieri said. 

Palmieri noted that the live show is not taped for television, but offers the audience and contestants the same experience.

It will be hosted by Todd Newton, a game show host for television shows like “Whammy,” “Hollywood Showdown” and “Press Your Luck.”

Price is Right

And the crowds go crazy for a chance to prove they know shopping better than anyone else. And prizes. There’s also prizes.

Still ‘Price is Right’

“It’s still ‘The Price is Right’ that everyone knows and loves,” he said. 

The Big Wheel and  the fabulous Showcase can also be expected during the live game show.

Palmieri said he personally cannot wait for the show’s Plinko game.

“That, or the guy who climbs up the mountain,” he said, referring to the popular Cliffhangers segment.

Prizes will be similar to those viewers see on the television version of “The Price is Right,” such as appliances, vacations and cars 

“Lucky audience members can even win prizes right from their seat,” Palmieri said.

He fully expects the crowd to be decked out themed attire, just as television audiences are.
