MESA, AZ — Did you ever want to be a contestant on Nickelodeon's hit TV show, Double Dare, and run through the obstacle course collecting flags, including picking the one from the famous larger-than-life nose?

Now is your chance.

Double Dare Live has been turned into a stage show and is making its way across the country.

The show is scheduled to stop at the Mesa Arts Center for two performances on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019. The first show is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. and the second show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Audience members will be chosen to compete on two teams for prizes. Games include "brain-bending trivia questions, completing messy physical challenges and ultimately facing the legendary obstacle course," according to a news release.

The stage show is hosted by Marc Summers, who hosted the original TV show from 1986-1993, and his co-host Robin Russo. Summers is also part of the Double Dare TV show reboot, which premiered last summer on Nickelodeon. He provides color commentary during the obstacles. Actress Liza Koshy serves at the host.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 5 at 10 a.m. and range between $40-$77. They can be bought online, at the box office or by phone. VIP tickets include a meet-and-greet with Summers, premium seating, and a laminate souvenir.
