You may finally live out your life-long dream of playing Plinko!

The Tobin Center for the Peforming Arts announced today that The Price Is Right Live! is making its way down to San Antonio this September. Finally, you don't have to travel to the long-running game show's Burbank, California, studios to pull a dick move and bet just $1 more than your fellow contestant. 

Expect the full Price Is Right experience, from Contestants Row, to classic games like the aforementioned Plinko and The Big Wheel. (Please, please, please let there be Cliffhangers.) Be sure to practice your total freak-out when you make the winning bid. 

It's a shame San Antonio won't be graced with the presence of America's favorite dirty old man, Bob Barker, who retired in 2007. (We're still not over it.) The host won't even be Drew Carey. Instead, the touring production of The Price Is Right Live! is hosted by television veteran Todd Newton, who you might remember from E! Entertainment Television in the 90's or as host of Family Game Night on The Hub. But Bob Barker or no, you can't miss out on your chance to win A NEW CAR (!) in the Showcase Showdown. 

Tickets for The Price Is Right Live! go on sale on Friday, June 26 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased online, via phone (210) 223-8624 and at the Tobin Center Box Office.

And please remember, help control the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered.

The Price Is Right Live!

$26-$44, 7pm Sun., Sept. 13, Tobin Center For The Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624,
