‘The Price is Right’ is Coming to a Connecticut Stage
One of the highlights of my snow/sick days as a child was staying home and watching National Treasure Bob Barker and Johnny Olson invite screaming contestants to 'Come on down!' on The Price is Right. Hell, even now as an adult, I love curling up on the couch at 11 AM or primetime to watch Drew Carey give away exercise equipment, a dream vacation to Bora Bora, and the ultimate - A NEW CAR.
The Price is Right has been an American television institution for almost 50 years, it premiered in 1972 and around 14 years ago, the producers brought their beloved game show out on the road. The Price is Right Live! has made a couple of stops over the years to the Connecticut Casinos, but I've just learned that LiveNation is bringing The Price is Right Live! to the Oakdale Theater in Wallingford in early 2022.
Come on, don't you think that you could crush Plinko? I know that if I had the chance, that little mountain climber would never yodel his way off the top of the mountain in Cliff Hanger. I've studied the retail prices of small appliances, I got this.
According to thepriceisrightlive.com, they've given away over $12 million in prizes over the 14 years that the show has been brought out on the road. You must be 18 or older to play as a contestant, but all ages are welcome at the actual show.
If you feel lucky, The Price is Right Live! is coming to the Toyota Oakdale Theater in Wallingford on Sunday night February 20, 2022. There's a presale going on now, and the public ticket sale starts Friday, October 22, 2021 at 10AM.
