Popular Trivia Game Show and Live Podcast THE QUIZ BOX Comes to Cincinnati

KTC_The Quiz Box logoFor the past six years, comedy and trivia fans in Columbus, Ohio have been gathering monthly to laugh and win prizes at their favorite local game show, The Quiz Box, and now, for the first time ever, the show is hitting the road to Cincinnati.

Co-hosts Erik Tait (as seen on Penn & Teller: Fool Us) and Nickey Winkelman (as seen on Laughs TV) along with podcast producer Kevin Hendrix (as seen on Jeopardy!) are bringing THE QUIZ BOX to Know Theatre of Cincinnati on Saturday, March 28. This Columbus-based podcast and game show has been growing in popularity since its debut in 2014, bringing in local and touring comedians to play a game of impossible trivia to win prizes for audience counterparts.

Each audience member gets a chance to “play,” by receiving a raffle ticket upon entry to the show. The best part is: audience members don’t need to know any trivia at all. The comedian panelists who select raffle tickets from the “Bucket of People” answer ridiculous trivia questions and rack up points, which their audience counterpart gets to cash in later for some outrageous prizes.

Past guests on the show include comedian Michael Malone (Comedy Central, Showtime), Jason Banks (True TV) and Nina West (Ru Paul’s Drag Race).

The March 28 show at Know Theatre will feature Columbus comedian Amber Falter, Cincinnati’s own Kelly Collette, touring juggler and comedian Tony Steinbach, and special guest David Levy of True Theatre.

Find out more about The Quiz Box at www.quizboxcast.com, and listen to full episodes of the podcast on iTunes and Spotify. Tickets for the March 28 show are available through Know Theatre’s website or by going to www.quizboxcast.com/events/know

With a lavish mansion on a hill and over-the-top parties, Remus was a millionaire playboy in 1922 – some even say he was the real Jay Gatsby. His legendary rise and fall are now the subject of this new musical.

Third Annual Film Festival at Anderson High School

AHS_Riverside 1

Anderson High School Film students began shooting for the Film Festival in the Fall. This is for a scene in THE RIVER’S EDGE.

As you might expect, our upcoming events are being impacted by the Coronavirus. The 2020 Film Festival will not take place on March 27 & 28. We are tentatively rescheduling for April 17 & 18. Existing tickets will be honored. If you cannot make the rescheduled date, we hope you will consider allowing your ticket purchase to be a donation, before requesting a refund. Thanks, everyone—be careful but stay positive!

On March 27 and 28, student films will once again take center stage at Anderson High School. The young Film Department at AHS, in collaboration with the AHS Symphony Orchestra, will present three short films that are almost entirely student created.

The scripts were written by Seniors Emily Ivanov, Caitlin Walsh, Jack Chandler, and Riley Orth, and the musical score for each film was composed by Senior Ian Baker. The actors and filmmakers are all students, and each night the score will be played live by the AHS Symphony Orchestra students.

On-screen talent for the Film Festival includes Senior Mason Weber as Isaac and Senior Riley Orth as Sean in TANGLED LINE.

Film Teacher Chad Weddle, who founded the Film department in 2016, directed each of the three films, and says that they offer something special for local audiences. “You won’t be watching students perform other people’s work, you’ll be witnessing their own very personal stories, their own creative process. This program allows the students to truly share their voice with the community.”

“With three different films on the ticket,” says Orchestra Director Felipe Morales-Torres,  “audiences are guaranteed to hear a wonderful variety of original music, from lush fantasy soundtracks to somber folk melodies and dreamy mechanical inventions.”

AHS_Dream 1

The short film STORIES FROM THE DREAMSCAPE required surreal, dreamlike sequences that challenged the student filmmakers.

This is Mr. Morales-Torres’ second year working with the Department, and he appreciates the challenge this format brings to his music students. “It is remarkable to watch them perform in sync with the film, but knowing that everything was created by students is all the more impressive.”

The three short films are distinct, but Mr. Weddle points out that they share a common theme. “The films deal with loss, abuse, peer pressure, all things that families throughout society face every day. The student authors do not shy away from these issues, but rather meet them head on. Every audience member will see or hear something during the evening that will resonate deeply with them.”

Tickets to each showing are $10. Seating is reserved, and tickets can be purchased in advance at www.Showtix4U.com, or at the door each night. Box office opens at 6:15 and the films begin at 7:00.
