small bar, but great service. No one waited very long to be served. They had some amazing-looking cookies for sale, as well. We went to Redbones after.

The weather was a bit chilly. I wore a skirt and sweater. Keep in mind, there is no coat check..

We really, I mean REALLY, wanted to like this! It was just ... not good. The sound system was terrible and the actors seemed to be acting just for themselves. There was much less audience participation that was suggested and we were only able to...continued

Be advised that this show may contain strong language and sexual references.

Becoming an Actual Contestant:

When you arrive at the show, the lovely usher who takes your ticket will ask if you’re interested in playing the game. If you would like to play, you’ll receive a name tag and your name will be placed in the official fishbowl.

At the beginning of the show, eight contestants will be called up to the stage (Price is Right-style) and divided into two teams to compete in the first round. The winning team of each round will win fun, fabulous prizes, and the losing team’s lowest-scoring members will be replaced with new contestants.

This continues over several rounds (each one a completely new original category), and then the night’s greatest contestants square off against one another until there is one final Old School Game Show champion! 

About the Ticket Supplier: Old School Game Show

OSGS is a live interactive theatre experience done with all the pageantry and analog style of a 1970’s television game show. The show combines elements of pub trivia, variety specials, and comedy sketches to produce a completely unique trivia experience that tests players pop culture acumen. With influences as vast as vaudeville, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, Andy Kaufman, and Battle of the Network Stars how could you go wrong?
