She brought this tale to heart-tugging life, through the voice of 12-year-old Sunny, who witnessed one of the most turbulent and hate-filled eras in American history. I am not always moved to tears at the end of a production but Deborah’s words, performed so tenderly by Stacey, made me forget that I was directing ... and, as the story closed, had me rolling past the final line for almost a full 30 seconds until I regained composure and hit “stop.”

Stacey J. is thrilled to share that she is the new Announcer for Season 3 of Family Game Night on The Hub. After a lengthy audition process she prevailed as the Network’s pick and joins Todd Newton, the 2012 Daytime Emmy Winner for Outstanding Game Show Host, for a fun and new show format. The two-time Parent’s Choice Award winning family game show premieres Sunday, September 23 @ 4pm/PST, 7pm EST only on The Hub.
The entire 15-episode season was shot on a sound stage in just six days with a few hours of recording copy revisions afterwards. The previous Announcer for the show was Burton Richardson of The Arsenio Hall Show, Family Feud and a stint on The Price is Right. Someone asked her recently if she was intimidated to try and fill such experienced shoes. Stacey’s response was simple and honest. She said, “She has great respect for Mr. Richardson and his experienced shoes. She has her own size 5 shoes and they fit her perfectly.”
Stacey had the extra bonus of being the studio audience warm up artist for all fifteen tapings, now that was some serious fun, people! Having never done this before, Stacey called upon her experience as a host, dancer and teacher as well her finely tuned improv and people skills to make sure everyone had a great time. Judging by the people’s reactions and line for autographs afterwards, it is safe to say the crowd was onboard with all of her antics. Just give Stacey a microphone and a challenge and she will deliver in a big way!
The whole experience for Stacey was amazing with everyone from the Network, the entire Production team and crew being so welcoming and supportive to “the new girl.” Family Game Night is all about families being together, having fun and working as a team. The awesome prizes and cash they can win is pretty sweet too! Be sure to watch and LISTEN every Sunday starting September 23 on The Hub.
