Family Feud auditions coming to region

Family Feud auditions are coming to the region on Sept. 15th and 16th at Wind Creek Hotel and Casino in Atmore.

Organizers say they are looking for “ families who have energy, enthusiasm and an ability to play the game!”

Family Feud, one of the most popular game shows on television, first aired in July 1976. The show went on a couple of different hiatuses, but its current version is getting ready to enter its 20th season, and area residents have a chance to be a part of it.

According to Family Feud’s FAQs, families can “smile, clap, high-five, cheer for each other, say, “Good Answer” and have fun” to stand out.

Auditions can only be set up in advance by appointment.

Go to FamilyFeud.com/Audition to make an appointment or call 323-762-8467.
