Vicki Quade's BIBLE BINGO to Make Chicago Premieres at Royal George Theatre
Vicki Quade and Nuns4Fun Entertainment are proud to announce the return of the comedy, Bible Bingo: An Act of Charity in Two Acts, to the Royal George Theatre, starting January 10.
The show ran for four weeks in November 2013 and got great online reviews from audience members. That paved the way for the opening of Christmas Bingo: It's a Ho-Ho-Holy Night, which received rave reviews from audience members and critics alike.
Bible Bingo is a comedy about the Catholic culture of fundraising and bingo, featuring the character, Mrs. Mary Margaret O'Brien, a former nun who now heads a fictitious archdiocese fundraising department.
The role will continue to be shared by three performers: Vicki Quade, Kathleen Puls Andrade, and Michelle Renee Thompson.
In this interactive comedy, the parish needs money and Mrs. O'Brien is ready to help! Bring the two together and you have a night of bible trivia, audience interaction, improvised moments, and the funniest quiz about the Holy Family you've ever seen.
Add to that a box of wacky prizes, fun bingo cards, and a lot of Catholic humor. In this interactive bingo show, you'll actually play bingo, and still learn a little something about what it means to be Catholic! The show gets the audience talking about everything from Adam & Eve to modern sins.
You'll be laughing so hard, you'll have to be careful watching your bingo cards!
"As the creator of Late Nite Catechism, Vicki Quade knows a thing or two about what makes a one-person show successful," states Pioneer Press, Chicago.
Online reviews called Bible Bingo "a masterful insight into the idiosyncrasies of the Catholic Church." Another review called the play, "engaging as well as educational. The interweaving of facts with current events/entertainment was hilarious. The crowd interaction was entertaining. Overall, a great night out."
Bible Bingo will have an open run, starting January 10. Fridays at 8 p.m. and Saturdays at 8 p.m.
Late Nite Catechism stays on the schedule, at 5 p.m. Saturdays and has added a 2 p.m. matinee on Sundays.
