Pine Manor to host NPR's "Says You!" at Ellsworth Theatre

A special New Year program of "Says You!" will be recorded at Ellsworth in front of a live audience on Saturday, January 3rd at 1:30p.m.


A public radio game show of bluff and bluster, words and whimsy.
Hosted by Richard Sher.

…a simple game with words played by two teams in front of live, enthusiastic audiences from coast to coast. For almost two decades, we’ve offered our listeners the best quips, quotes and questions that public radio has to offer, all scored to the rhythms of our musical guest performers.

If you’re new to the show, we invite you to join our panelists as host Richard Sher challenges them with the most interesting and difficult questions you’re likely to hear on the airwaves. Our motto: It’s not important to know the answers…it’s important to like the answers.

We have dozens of categories to pique your curiosity: ‘Cryptic Puns,’ ‘Definitions and Derivations,’ ‘What’s the Difference’ and ‘Odd Man Out,’ to name a few. And at the core of the game – our bluffing rounds. Here, three definitions are given for a mystery word, only one of which is the actual meaning. Think you can determine who’s bluffing? Try it and see if you can out-think our panelists.

There are lots of ways to play the game. You can listen live – each week – on a public radio station near you. You can download any show in our history. You can browse a volume or two of Says Us – The Scripts and Quips of Says You! And you can even become part of the show by contributing a question. That is…if you think you’ve got a good one.

Saturday January 3, 2015 at 1:30 pm.
