For Immediate Release
(Branson, Missouri) – The Welk Resort Branson is excited to announce the new celebrity host of “The Price Is Right Live!”. Starting August 20, 2012, Monday through Saturday at 8pm, nationally known host of “Antiques Roadshow”, Mark Walberg will host the live stage show version of the popular television show, complete with audience interaction!
Mark Walberg started his television career as an assistant at Dick Clark Productions and quickly moved in front of the camera as the announcer for the popular game show Shop Til You Drop. Since then, Walberg has hosted and been featured in an array of popular talk, reality competition, and game shows, including the FOX hit The Moment of Truth. He also has hosted home improvement competitions The Mansion and House Rules, knowledge quiz shows Test the Nation and Russian Roulette, the California state lottery program Make Me A Millionaire,FOX’s Temptation Island, CMT’s Your Chance To Dance and won The Weakest Link as a contestant playing for charity. He has hosted Antiques Roadshow on PBS for 8 years and is one of many hosts to have hosted The Price Is Right Live in Las Vegas over the last 6 years.
The Price Is Right, Live! follows virtually the same format as the TV show: anyone can register to participate as a contestant and may be called to, “Come on down!’. The contestant who wins the initial one-bid is then given a chance to win more prizes by playing one of the iconic and popular games such as Plinko, Cliffhangers, Punch-A-Bunch, and The Big Wheel to name just a few. And of course, two lucky contestants will get a chance to compete in the Showcase. Also, in the live stage show version, more than 40 audience members will receive prizes.
Mark Walberg brings a professional style and charm that will make The Price Is Right Live! one of the most popular and talked about shows in Branson.
The Price Is Right, Live! schedule covers July through December 2012. Performance times are 8 pm Monday through Saturday. Box Office price for adults is $29.95 + tax and a Kid (17 and under) is FREE! with paid adult. Additional kids tickets are $15 + tax.
