Live ‘Wheel of Fortune’ game show spins into Scranton Cultural Center on Nov. 14
From a press release:
It was announced today that “Wheel of Fortune Live,” a new theatrical experience, will be coming to the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple on Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 7:30 PM.
The live show, produced by Right Angle Entertainment in collaboration with Sony Pictures Television and UTA, is the one and only way fans can experience “America’s game” in person outside of Sony Pictures Studios in California.
One of the greatest game shows of all time has been adapted into a traveling stage show, giving more fans access and more chances to win. Guests who are randomly selected from the audience to go on stage will feel like they stepped into the game show itself, getting the opportunity to spin a full-sized replica of the iconic wheel.
During “Wheel of Fortune Live,” contestants can call consonants, buy vowels, and even solve puzzles to win fantastic prizes, including trips to destinations like Paris and Hawaii or up to $10,000 in cash. Everyone gets in on the fun and has the chance to win because there are audience games too.
Tickets range from $46.75-$90, with VIP packages available for an additional fee. A venue pre-sale for Scranton Cultural Center email subscribers begins this Wednesday, May 17 at 10 a.m. and runs through Thursday, May 18 at 11:59 p.m. Tickets will be available for purchase via ticketmaster.com or in person and by phone through the Fidelity Bank Box Office at the SCC (420 N. Washington Ave., Scranton).
VIP experience packages give fans early access, premiere seats, pre-show lounge access, and photo opportunities to spin the wheel.
Pat Sajak and Vanna White will not be on tour, and the hosts for this engagement will be announced later date. “Wheel of Fortune Live” is a touring production that is not made for broadcast.
“Wheel of Fortune,” a TV version of the popular game “Hangman,” is the most successful syndicated program in the history of television and has earned seven Emmy Awards, including the 2011 Emmy for Outstanding Game Show. Hosted by Sajak and White since its debut in 1983, the show has awarded more than $250 million in cash and prizes to its contestants. Over 10,000 people audition each year for the chance to appear on the show. With more than 26 million viewers per week, “America’s game” continues to attract a larger audience than many primetime TV shows.
