The Price Is Jeopardy Or No Deal Of Fortune
Saturday, October 27th, 2012
West Kootenay Women’s roller derby’s All-Star team, the Kootenay Kannibelles, are heading to the Canadian national championships in early 2013. The team, currently ranked 6th in Canada, earned their spot by finishing second at the Canadian westerns in Nelson this summer.
As part of their fundraising campaign to finance their adventure to the nationals the Kannibelles have teamed up with local game show performing company “The Price Is Jeopardy Or No Deal Of Fortune” for a special one-off performance of the fun filled show at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson.
The show, with the catchphrase “Don’t just see the show, BE the show”, features a mix of games and challenges designed to get the audience involved as they test their brains, skills and inhibitions to win points for their teams and prizes for themselves. And there will be a lot of prizes!
The link between the team and the show is Kannibelles coach Phil Loosley, who splits his time between his derby persona ‘Phil Yer Pants’and his game show host alias ‘Phillus Dillus’. Phil started the show as a fundraising event for Rossland Radio Co-Op in 2009 and since then it has evolved to entertain the people of the Kootenays at conferences, after-dinner events and parties, with clients including Columbia Basin Trust, the BC Seniors’ Games and FortisBC.
The 19 and over show will be staged at the Capitol Theatre on with the fun getting underway at 7.30.
