Salem theater to present "Game Show"
Salem Community Theater will turn its stage into a television studio as it presents “Game Show” for two weekends, beginning Friday.
“Game Show” is an audience-participation comedy that peeks into the world of television game shows.
As a special promotion during the run of the show, the theater is offering buy-one-get-one-free tickets. Also, every fifth reservation will receive a bonus prize.
“Game Show” is set during a live broadcast of a fictional, long-running TV game show. It places the theater audience (on a voluntary basis) into the role of the TV studio audience; members are picked as 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 the backstage antics that go on during the commercial breaks.
Ralph Lumley and Karen Hauck-Losito are co-directing the show. The cast includes David Bedell, Lisa Porterfield and Tyler Kinser.
