Rockland quiz show seeks teams
Rockland — The popular downtown audience participation quiz show “So You Think You Know Rockland” is scheduled for Tuesday night, Sept. 9, at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St. Any individual, organization or business interested in fielding a team or being a sponsor is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 593-6093.
For the past several years, the contest, a production of Rockland Main Street, Inc., has pitted multiple teams against each other to see who knows the most about history, trivia and current events pertaining to the Lime City. History buffs and other interested parties fill the theater seats to cheer for their favorite team and to stand ready to help with answers, if necessary.
During the event, which is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., six teams will compete in three separate rounds, with the three round winners facing off against each other for the Championship Round. The winning team will walk away with bragging rights and the much-prized, handcrafted trophy, created just for the event.
Tickets to attend the family-oriented event will be $10, $5 for students younger than age 18. Rockland Main Street, Inc., is a downtown advocacy group that focuses on historic preservation of, and economic development in, the downtown district, in addition to producing promotional events including “So You Think You Know Rockland,” the Summer Solstice Celebration Street Party, the “Midcoast Maine Has Talent — Or Not!” variety show; the “Rockland Has Style” fashion show and Experiential Auction; the Festival of Lights Parade; and the Lobster Trap Christmas Tree.
