ORONO – One of America’s favorite game shows will be looking for contestants in Orono this weekend.

The Wheelmobile, the promotional vehicle for the game show “Wheel of Fortune,” will be in Eastern Maine searching for contestants to play on America’s Game. The Eastern Maine open auditions will only take place on Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22 at 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Collins Center for the Arts on the campus of the University of Maine.

The Wheelmobile brings the fun and excitement of the broadcast game show “Wheel of Fortune” to local fans. Attendees will have the opportunity to show off their personality and puzzle solving skills in front of Wheel of Fortune staff and be evaluated as a contestant for the show’s upcoming 37th season. The Wheelmobile event is free and welcome to all ages.

Those interested in auditioning will need to fill out an application in order to have their name drawn at random to try out on stage and play a sped-up round of the game. Everyone on stage will walk away with unique prizes. The Wheel of Fortune promotions team will begin handing out applications one hour before each show begins and each show will last approximately one hour. Only those 18 and over can submit an application. Anyone who submits a completed application and is not called on stage can still be selected at random to be invited to a future final round of auditions when the show’s contestant producers return to the area. This will be the Wheelmobile’s only contestant search in Maine this season.

For nearly 20 years, the Wheelmobile has been making fans’ dreams come true. “Every year, ‘Wheel of Fortune’ receives over one million inquiries from viewers who want to be contestants,” says Executive Producer Harry Friedman. “The Wheelmobile was created to give people all over the country an opportunity to realize that dream.” In fact, most contestants who appear on “Wheel of Fortune” are discovered at Wheelmobile events in their hometowns.

The Wheelmobile event will take place inside the Hutchins Concert Hall located within the Collins Center for the Arts. The main entrance to the event will be through the Hutchins Concert Hall Entry Pavilion and applications for the chance to audition will be distributed inside the Hutchins Concert Hall Lobby.

“Wheel of Fortune” airs weeknights at 7 p.m. on WVII-TV ABC 7. For more information on the Wheelmobile, tune into WVII-TV ABC 7, log on to or visit
