Survivor Family Game Show

Family Stage

This completely unique show involves audience members of all ages and engages them in silly games of skill to hilarious results.

The game sounds simple enough: Audience volunteers are cast as members of the crew from the old “Gilligan’s Island” TV show. To the cheers and applause of their fellow audience members, contestants find themselves eating bugs (Gummi bugs, that is), spinning hula hoops, dancing the limbo, yelling like Tarzan, and more. Bring your family together with a fun family show!
