Based off of the popular game show What’s My Line?
It’s Your Business? offers engagement and fun in multiple ways!
- Audience members will enjoy the communal knowledge of the guest’s occupation, while the panel knows nothing. As a result, laughter rules as the questions from the panel create hilarious scenarios when juxtaposed to the reality of the guest’s job or business. Or, an audience member can choose not to look when the occupation is revealed and privately try to guess based on the panel’s questions.
- Residents and staff can invite family and friends to join them in becoming the game, creating an opportunity to have fun “performing” in a safe environment. It’s live, it’s active, and it’s voluntary, so residents and others can engage as much or as little as they desire. In any given session, up to 15 different people can be part of recreating it for the audience.
- The game addresses the intangible aspect of nostalgia by making it live, so that the positive feelings are not only triggered by the past, but by the present as well – a win-win for your residents.
- For residents who may not have seen the show, forgotten how it works or are from another country or culture, it provides an opportunity to interact as others help them understand and participate.
