Know Theatre Announces New Benefit Event This Month

The Cost is Accurate!
A special event in gameshow style, to benefit Know Theatre of Cincinnati

KTC_logoImagine your favorite gameshows from yesterday and today. Now put ‘em in a blender, add some of Know Theatre’s patented unpredictability, and you get The Cost Is Accurate!

This manic gameshow mashup will take place on the Know MainStage on June 25, 2015 at 7pm. Hosted by Know Theatre’s own Chris Wesselman and local indie music star Randy Proctor (previously of The KillTones and The Dukes Are Dead), The Cost Is Accurate will be a wild night of games of chance, games of skill, and games we blatantly rip off from TV history—but presented live onstage, so you get a chance to get in on the action!

Your admission to this fast-paced and funny night of friendly competition earns you the chance to play to win great prizes from Cincinnati business, entertainment venues, and more. Local celebrity guests including rockstar mixologist Molly Wellman and City Council Member Chris Seelbach will also get in on the fun, acting as Showcase Models for all our great prizes.

You have a 1-in-100 chance of winning the evening’s top prize, sponsored by Beechmont Motor Sports: a 2013 “Vino Classic” scooter, valued at $2,200!

Thanks to the generosity of local business owners and friends of the Know, we’ll also host a silent auction in our Underground bar, featuring vacation getaways, unique experiences, Cincy-flavored gift baskets, and more. And your $60 ticket includes light appetizers as well as your first drink at Know’s newly renovated Underground bar.

All proceeds from The Cost Is Accurate will support Know Theatre’s 18th MainStage season—the most ambitious season of new plays in our history. Tickets for The Cost is Accurate will go on sale June 1 at knowtheatre.com or via phone at 513-300-5669.

So, on June 25 at 7pm, take a chance and join us for The Cost Is Accurate, a night of raucous gameshow fun to benefit your Theatrical Playground: Know Theatre of Cincinnati.
