Escapology’s live escape games immerse players into storylines, presenting a fun, interactive 60-minute challenge. Working as a team of two to six people, players hunt for clues, break codes, solve puzzles and complete mental and physical challenges to engineer escapes.

As players hatch exit strategies, game masters use closed-circuit television to send cryptic messages to a monitor in the room. Theme music builds tension and a countdown clock keeps pressure pulsing.

Escapology founder and CEO Simon Davison said the popularity of escape games has exploded. Escapology’s first venue, on International Drive in Orlando, Florida, opened in June 2014 and has since served more than 50,000 players a year and more than 120,000 customers overall.

Celebrity Impersonators and Tribute Artists From Around The World Gather For The Reel Awards & Tribute Artists Convention

The 23rd Production of The Reel Awards, an entertaining two and a half-hour tongue in cheek parody, spoof, and tribute to the real Academy Awards, featuring celebrity impersonators & tribute Artists from around the world, took place on Monday evening, February 20, 2017 at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino, in downtown Las Vegas.  During that same week, the Tribute Artists Convention offers participants the opportunity to meet and network with others in the business, attend seminars and perform in showcases for talent bookers, managers, agents, producers and the general public.

The Reel Awards show awards were presented in 15 categories for excellence in the field of impersonation interspersed with live vocal performances  (no lip syncing) by an impressive roster of talent in tribute to their respective characters. Co-hosts for the show were two impersonators, Dee Dee Hanson as Joan Rivers (California) and Bobbie Winslow as Fran Drescher (Texas), who delivered upbeat and entertaining back and forth banter in character, introducing the awards presenters and the evening’s featured performers. 
 
The Reel Awards kicked off at 5 pm on Fremont Street in front of the Golden Nugget with red carpet arrivals hosted by none other than Joan Rivers impersonator, Dee Dee Hanson, who interviewed a long line of celebrity impersonators.  Awards show nominees, presenters, and entertainers along with VIP celebrity impersonators and tribute artists in full character strutted their stuff on the red carpet that was bordered with a line of camera crews and reporters, along with a crowd of locals and tourists who gathered in excitement at the chance to see the faux stars in action.

The Reel Awards Show began at 7:00 pm with an stellar roster of tribute artists slated to perform including James Anthony as Frank Sinatra (Virginia), Suzie Kennedy as Marilyn Monroe (United Kingdom), Troy Anderson as Louis Armstrong (Florida), Andrea Tyler as Adele (Florida), and Bill Pantazis as George Michael (British Columbia). The second half featured performances by Sherie Rae Parker (Nevada), Pavel Sfera as Bono (California), Keith George as Boy George (United Kingdom & Tenerife), Kathy Shelby as Wynonna Judd (Nevada), Connie Crawford as Naomi Judd (Nevada), Heidi Thompson as Cher (Nevada), and Gene Sironen as Elton John (Nevada).

Fifteen Reel Awards were presented throughout the evening in various categories. The awards hostess was Erika Winslow as Lady Gaga (Texas).  Each award recipient was introduced by two celebrity impersonators who presented “The Can” which is a gold film can inscribed with the name of the award and the recipient.  Presenters hailed from throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, and Germany.
 
Honors were awarded to those who have risen to the top of the tribute artist entertainment industry and to individuals who have paralleled the success of some of Hollywood’s most famous entertainers in movies, television, and music, as well as famous names in politics and sports.

THE REEL AWARDS was initially conceived in 1989 by Janna Joos of International Celebrity Images and Alana Joos of Entertainment Express.  Together they came up with the idea of an Awards Show for Celebrity Impersonators, Tribute Artists, and Look-Alikes as a way of acknowledging their professional performances in the entertainment industry, as well as encouraging up and coming new talent. The first Awards Show was presented in March 1992 in the Blossom Room of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, the home of the first Academy Awards ceremony in 1928.  THE REEL AWARDS spoofs other award shows that are like the Academy Awards. Instead of the “Oscar,” the award recipients receive the “Can,” which is a film reel can inscribed with the award category and winner’s name.
