"Wheel of Fortune Live!," the previously announced first live theatrical tour of the syndicated game show, will be hosted by Mark L. Walberg of PBS' "Antiques Roadshow" and singer and Broadway star Clay Aiken on a rotating basis, producers announced Monday.
Walberg will be host for the stop at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post in Brookville on Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. "Like most of America, I've been a 'Wheel' fan for decades!" said Walberg, who turns 60 on Aug. 31, in a statement. "Being able to bring America's Game to your hometown is truly a dream come true. I can't wait to celebrate Wheel of Fortune with fans from all over the country and, as a bonus, help to make you all winners!"
Audience members who register with event staff up to three hours prior to showtime can audition to go on stage for a chance to spin a replica of the TV show's iconic wheel and solve puzzles on the tour's puzzle board to win up to $10,000, or a trip to Paris or Hawaii, or other prizes, producers said. Additionally, randomly selected audience members will win cash and prizes.
The show's longtime host, Pat Sajak, and letter-turner, Vanna White, are not on the tour. Actor Kalpana Pot serves as tour co-host, with Dodgers Stadium host and radio personality Dave Styles as announcer.
Tickets are $41 to $93 at Ticketmaster.com, which additionally offers higher-priced VIP tickets.
