Wordplay is Charlottesville’s own live game show. It’s a team-based competition for people who love words, vocabulary, pop culture, history, literature, and showing off how smart they are. It’s also a fundraiser for Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/ Albemarle. The game is open to everyone who wants to participate on a team of three. While it is geared for adults, teens should do fine.

Wordplay 2017 takes place at The Paramount on Thursday, April 27.

Wordplay is the opposite of most fundraisers, as every single person in the room is participating the entire time. The teams are competing, but everyone in the audience is playing along, too. Each audience member has their own answer sheets just like the teams. Trust us when we tell you that the vibe in the room is fantastic. The game is fun, entertaining, and challenging. It makes for a great live show that’s really amusing to attend.
