ABC's popular game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" films in front of a live studio audience in Stamford, Connecticut. Tickets to the taping are free, so if you are going to be in Connecticut and would like to attend a taping, you can request tickets quickly and easily online. The show opens up audience seats in blocks of four weeks at a time. A good block of the show's season is filmed over the summer months, so your best bet for getting tickets is generally in June, July, or August.

One of the fun things about watching a taping of this show is that you can apply to be a contestant — and often take the test to be on the show — at the same time you attend. This makes the event doubly exciting for anyone who has ever wanted to be on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire!" Watching the taping is a lot of fun, and I highly recommend getting your free tickets if you'll be in the area.

Audience Ticket Restrictions

There are only a couple of things to keep in mind when ordering tickets: all audience members must be 18 years of age or older and there is a limit of ten tickets per order and tickets can only be sent to residents living within the United States. Otherwise, it's a fairly simple process to get tickets to the show with relatively few obstacles standing in your way.

If, however, you have a group larger than ten people who wish to attend together, you can indicate this on the ticket order form and someone from the show will be in touch to try and arrange seating for your party.

It's best to make requests like these as far in advance as possible. If you are visiting from outside the country, it is best to call the hotline to see if you can have the tickets emailed to you or held at the door, or sent to the hotel or residence where you'll be staying.

Ordering Online and Ticket Confirmation

The online ticket order form will ask you for your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, the number of people in your party and your top three preferred taping dates.

There is also a box to check off if anyone in your party wishes to audition for the show. However, often times the website here will say no tickets are available as they go fast. It is best to also check New York Tickets, a larger management company which helps tourists visiting nearby New York City acquire tickets for "Millionaire" as well as "America's Got Talent" and other similar programs. Another similar site, On Camera Audiences, offers to waitlist you for future tapings. 

Make sure that you fill out the e-mail address field on the order form correctly because your ticket confirmation will be sent to this address. You'll have to print out this confirmation and take it with you when you arrive at the studio. If you book far enough in advance, however, your tickets will be sent to you via regular mail about two weeks after you receive your email confirmation.

Otherwise, your confirmation e-mail will be sent out 2-4 weeks before the taping date. 

Day of The Show

Once your fated day of taping comes, you'll need to remember to either bring you the e-mail confirmation (printed) or tickets with you to the studio in Stamford where the show will take place. Although the tickets and accompanying information should include this, the address where the show tapes is the Connecticut Film Center at 300 Stillwater Avenue in Stamford, CT.

 

Remember to arrive early, especially if one of your party is hoping to apply to be on the show. There are plenty of great restaurants and attractions near the studio, so even if you have to wait a while it's a beautiful city to enjoy.

If you have any questions about your tickets, accessibility or anything else, there is a hotline set up that you can call for answers at (203) 703-9553 (long distance rates may apply).
