GAME SHOW

This title is now available worldwide.

Full-length, Comedy

Set during a “live broadcast” of a fictional, long-running TV game show, GAME SHOW places the theater audience in the role of the TV studio audience, in which members are picked as the contestants to play the trivia-based game and win actual prizes. In addition to watching and playing during the “broadcast” – where anything can and does happen – the audience also witnesses all the backstage, back-stabbing antics “behind the scenes” that go on during the “commercial breaks” of GAME SHOW.

Now Playing:

Pines Dinner Theatre in Allentown, PA now through August 21, 2022!
