Whenever I stayed home sick from school, I would loaf on the couch and watch "The Price is Right," weakly amused by the audience members' flashy outfits and antics, and trying to keep count of how many kisses Bob Barker received from enthusiastic grandmas. It's likely that most people who have watched the show have their strategy down, just in case they ever found themselves about to roll the Big Wheel.
Now's your chance, fellow Rochesterians. Come on down to the Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.) on Saturday, June 1, and be a part of the audience for "The Price Is Right Live!" Contestants (ages 18+) will be pulled from the audience and offered a chance to win appliances, vacations, new cars, and local glory as they take on Plinko, Cliffhangers, and the fabulous Showcase Showdown. The show will be hosted by Todd Newton.
"The Price is Right Live!" takes place at 7:30 p.m., and tickets cost $30.50-$90.50. Get tickets by calling 222-5000 and register for your chance to be a contestant (no purchase necessary) by visiting rbtl.org. Registration will also be available at the Auditorium Theatre Box Office three hours prior to show time (4:30 p.m.). Ticket purchase will not increase your chances of being selected to play. To watch the show, a ticket purchase is required.
