The ultimate game show is coming to Broad Street in Downtown Kingsport. LampLight Theatre’s Foggy Valley Gang will bring their farcical antics to their newest venue in the intimate setting of the Banquet Hall of The Emporium with the premiere of “Foggy Valley Game Show.”
The word is out. A new funeral home, Miller’s Memorial Mortuary and Mausoleum, is planning to open in Foggy Valley, TN and is sure to rival the B.A. Goodin Funeral Home. The Goodin family will use whatever means including gathering shady secrets about their contenders in order to run the competition out of town.
The Goodins find out that the daughter of the proprietors of this new establishment, Judith Miller, happens to be the long-time stalker of family friend, Rev. Clyde T. Humperdink. The Goodins try to convince Rev. Clyde to woo Judith in order to stop the Millers from “setting up shop.” The Millers agree not to open Miller’s Memorial Mortuary and Mausoleum if Rev. Clyde will marry their daughter. In desperation to avoid unholy matrimony, Rev. Clyde strikes a deal and convinces the Millers and Goodins to participate in the Ultimate Game Show in order to settle their issues and retain his singlehood. They agree and the winners will take all including $25,000 Grand Prize. Tragically, if the Millers win, Rev. Clyde must marry Judith and the Millers will start a new funeral business in Foggy Valley. If the Goodins win, the Millers must leave town, and Rev. Clyde will retain his freedom.
Game host, Mowie Handell, will spur the competition between the two families. Games include Jeopardize Trivia (Jeopardy), Memorable Melodies (Name That Tune), and The Cost is Correct (The Price is Right). Spokesmodel, Vanana Light, comes up missing and Flo Rakestraw and sidekick, Gladys Looney, must fill in. A tie brings the families to a round in Sudden Death (Family Feud) to determine the winner. Members of the audience will also be pulled into the competition and will have the opportunity to win prizes as well. Who will win? What secrets will be revealed?
“Foggy Valley Game Show” will be presented at on Saturday and Sunday, May 5th and 6th at The Emporium at 146 Broad Street in Kingsport, TN.
