GOOD LUCK MACBETH THEATRE CO. & HOMESLICE PRODUCTIONS PRESENT
“The Game Show Show”
Producers Return Adult Friendly Game Show Parody to Reno
Contact: Chris Daniels, Managing Director, GLM
“The Game Show Show”, Reno’s premier parody game show, debuted as part of Good Luck Macbeth Theatre Company’s 2014 Season. Now, back by popular demand, “The Game Show Show” returns with a new spin on classic game shows they’ve named “Reno Squares” and “The Money Pyramid”.
The Game Show Show, created, co-produced, and hosted by Jessica Levity of Homeslice Productions, stars Reno’s most popular comedy troupe, The Utility Players, alongside a variety of other talented Reno celebrities, “celebrities”, theater personalities, and characters-in-general. “Game shows are a great opportunity to share the stage with a multitude of people in this town who can make me laugh until it hurts,” shares Levity. “As soon as I released our “Now Casting” campaign, I received an onslaught of emails from local talent hoping to be featured as center square in Reno Squares, or as a contestant battling for silly prizes.” The final cast list for the run of the second annual Game Show Show will be released in late January.
With a 75% overall attendance in 2014, The Game Show Show ranked as one of GLM’s highest selling shows of all time, especially for an original production, and GLM is hoping to break that record for the show’s return in 2015.
The show, though mostly improvised, is currently being penned by The Utility Players, with direction by Levity. “You know you’ve reached comedic gold when we can’t make it through a writing session without crying from laughter,” reveals Levity. Levity has received a lot of inspiration from the fantastic set designed by New York natives, Gabe and Lenora Graham. The overall goal of the entire production, from the set to the cast to the prizes, is to remind the community how important it is to play, just for fun.
