Voted “Standout New Work” by the Silicon Valley Small Venue Theatre Awards, this original musical is a kick for anyone who loves TV game shows like What’s My Line, Price is Right, Queen for a Day, Beat the Clock, I’ve Got a Secret and Match Game.

Patrons are encouraged to get their tickets early and ask for a Nielsen Seat to help influence the outcome of the show.
