Going to see The Price is Right LIVE!
« on: February 12, 2019, 03:35:54 PM »
Hello

I am so EXCITED!!!!  I wanted to share the news with the message board. I hope that I am posting this in the right place.  But, I am going to go see The Price Is Right LIVE when it comes to Indianapolis, Indiana on February 22 (next Friday)!  This will be my first time ever seeing the LIVE stage show. I know it won't be the same as seeing the actual show in Los Angeles with Drew Carey, but I hope that I will have just as much as fun!

I've been to the show twice and I'm sure you will have a good time! Remember to get there early to register to be a contestant, 2 to 3 hours early if you can.

Thank you, JayC.  The show starts at 7 p.m. (EST) and I plan on leaving around 4 p.m.   I also forgot to mention that I have a front row seat near the stage and contestants row. I am taking a cousin of mine with me as well.

I've seen the stage show three times:  Once in 2012 in Wallingford, CT, once in 2016 in Lowell, MA, and once in 2017, in Providence, RI (with our very own Prizes!).  Todd Newton hosted, while Randy West announced the Connecticut show.  Jerry Springer hosted, while Andy Martello announced the Massachusetts and Rhode Island shows.

It's a fun show, and you'll get a kick out of shouting prices, numbers, products, and guesses at the stage, just like the real TV show.  There can be very exciting wins, too!  For example, at the Massachusetts show, there was a Triple Implication in Any Number, where each prize has just one digit left unrevealed, and the contestant picked the right number to win a trip to Las Vegas.

Hello JayC  I heeded your advice, and I let my friend who is going with me (and driving) know that it would be best to get there 2 to 3 hours early. That should give us enough time to register to be contestants.

I went to one years ago with my mom in Atlantic City.  We had a lot of fun.  David Ruprecht of Supermarket Sweep hosted.  I said that I am a big fan of Supermarket Sweep.  He was really nice.  I have an autographed picture in my kitchen and a sweatshirt he signed in my bedroom.  I'll definitely go again if he is hosting.

As the day grows nearer, I was just wondering, what are the requirements to receive prizes if you are a contestant on stage to play a pricing game? Also, do you need to take any documentation along to prove income or age or anything?

You just need to register beforehand and be at least 18 years old. All you need is your driver's license or other official ID to claim prizes.

Thank you! I am definitely over 18 and do have a valid driver's license. :)

I am getting more excited for Friday to be here!!!   :P :P :P  I cannot wait!  I even went ahead and am having T shirts made with the shows logo on the front with the words "PICK ME!" on it, for me and my cousin who is attending the show with me.  This is going to be somewhat bittersweet too, as I had wanted to attend with my mother for the past few years, but her health hadn't been the greatest, and sadly, she passed away almost a year ago, she passed in April 2019  :-( .  So, my being able to attend the show, I feel she will be with me in my heart.

Contestants on the live show are chosen randomly unlike the TV show, but I'm sure they'll appreciate the effort with the shirts :D

Very sorry to hear about your mother, she'll be there with you in spirit.

Your mother is still alive because when I'm typing this, it is Thursday February 21st, 2019. So how can your mother be dead in April 2019 when that month has not even arrived yet.

I wonder if it was a typo and they meant to say April 2018.
