The State Theatre in New Brunswick announced an online Trivia Night for Wednesday, August 19 at 7pm with drag hostess Pissi Myles. Proceeds raised during the zoom challenge will support State Theatre’s Community Engagement programs.
The trivia challenge will cover the music, movies, musicals, and pop culture of the early 2000s. The trivia will be composed of 60 multiple choice questions. The first-place winner gets a $150 State Theatre gift certificate and the second-place winner gets a State Theatre swag bag.
Online Trivia Night will be hosted on Zoom on each participant’s desktop computer and played on a smartphone-based trivia game.
Drag comedian and singer, Pissi Myles will host the evening of trivia.
