Come on down: Wilson Center brings back Price is Right Live this fall

WILMINGTON — Folks with mad skills guessing the price of a new car or gallon of milk will be in their element this fall when Wilson Center brings back the popular touring game show, “The Price is Right Live.” Tickets, which run $31-$86, go on sale, Wednesday, May 19, for Cape Fear Stage members and to the general public on Friday, May 21, 10 a.m.

The audience is expected to be at full capacity, 1,500 seats, according to the Wilson Center, but the venue will follow all Covid-19 state and local guidelines as necessary at the time of the show.

“The Price is Right” is the longest running game show in television history, having launched in 1972 with famed host Bob Barker. Barker retired in 2007 and comedian Drew Carey took over the stage. The live event, however, is hosted by a rotation of celebrity guests, and has included Marc Summers, Mark Walberg, Alan Thicke, Jerry Springer, and Joey Fatone.

An interactive game show — best known for pulling audience members onstage randomly to play games like Plinko, Cliffhangers, The Big Wheel and others — contestants have a chance to win appliances, cars, vacations, and cash. The touring show has doled out $12 million in prizes throughout the last decade.

The show will stop over in Wilmington on September 7-8, 2021. Tickets can be purchased at the Wilson Center site.
