For those who want to play, here’s how you can get your chance!

  • Your $10 admission gets you 1 ticket to enter you into a drawing to play.
  • You can increase your chances to play, by buying additional tickets at $1 each, or an arms length of additional tickets for $5!
  • Tickets will be drawn randomly until we have 10 players (5 per Family Team).

Family Teams are not necessarily related! All team members are randomly drawn!

First team to score 300 points, wins the game!

A Fast Money round is then played by 2 members of the winning team. If your team earns 200+ points during the Fast Money round, then each member of your team wins a pair of tickets for any upcoming Villagers show in our 2016-2017 season!!
