Says You! Comes to Milton, Courtesy of Zach Moore ’08
Says You!, the popular public radio quiz show, will be taped before a live studio audience in Milton’s Ruth King Theatre on October 24 and 25. The show’s associate producer, Milton alumnus and technical production whiz Zach Moore, Class of 2008, helped to make this happen.
As its tagline suggests, Says You! is “a game of words and whimsy, bluff and bluster,” consisting of competing teams of panelists set out to correctly answer questions designed to stump. Fans can submit mind-bending questions and suggestions via the show’s Web site, which the host then uses during the game’s live tapings across the country. Rounds consisting of trivia questions, word games, brainteasers and the favorite “bluffing round” ultimately place one team at the top. First broadcasted in 1997, Says You! is the brainchild of the show’s host and executive producer, Richard Sher. Independently produced by Pipit & Finch in Boston, over 120 radio stations across the country air the quiz show.
Zach Moore ’08 is no stranger to King Theatre. During his time at Milton, Zach was responsible for successfully bringing professional quality lighting and sound to over 25 productions on Milton’s main stage. Now a sophomore at California Institute of the Arts, Zach will return to Milton for the show’s taping on October 25.
The show on Saturday, October 24 begins at 7 p.m. and the taping on Sunday, October 25 is at 3 p.m. Milton’s jazz students will also provide entertainment for the evening. Ticket purchases are open to the public and a reserved number of seats are available for members of the Milton Academy community.
