Sean Allen, spokesperson for the Palace Theatre, said the live version is the same game everyone knows, but with a twist — no family is required and everyone, including the audience, will have a chance to win.
“They don’t actually pick a family,” Allen said. “They pick randomly from the audience to act as a family ... you don’t have to bring your whole family to play the game.”
Prior to the show, audience members will have a chance to register to become contestants, and just before the show begins, the contestants will be announced and makeshift families will be created.
One eager ticket holder is thrilled about the slight deviation from normal “Family Feud” play.
“I am going with a couple of my friends from back in college ... sorority sisters count as family, right?” said Elizabeth Rose of Slingerlands.
Rose said she is a huge fan of “Family Feud” and will do anything for a chance to play.
“I love the show on TV, and I feel like I am always coming up with what I think are the most obvious answers that no one ever seems to guess,” Rose said. “The things people actually do guess crack me up, though. But I feel like I would be awesome at playing in real life so as soon as I heard it was coming to the Palace, I called up a bunch of my friends to see if they wanted to go too.”
