THE QUEEN OF BINGO Closes Out The Totem Pole Playhouse 68th Summer Season
Totem Pole Playhouse, America's beloved summer theatre, located in Caledonia State Park between Gettysburg and Chambersburg, PA, will close out the summer season with its one week only bonus show, a "special return engagement" of the stage comedy The Queen of Bingo which first played Totem Pole in 2009 and marked the introduction of Rowan Joseph as an actor to Totem Pole audiences. Joseph became only the fifth Artistic Director in Totem Pole Playhouse's 68-year history, a role he assumed in 2013.
Sponsored by Essis and Sons Carpet One, The Queen of Bingo explores the perils of Bingo, family bonds, winning, losing, and sibling rivalry. Joseph will once again portray 'Babe', a 52-year old, larger than life, sugar-crazed, Bingo fanatic who is joined by her older, svelte, senior citizen sister, 'Sis', played once more by Shane Partlow. Joseph and Partlow are also business partners who competed as a team on the 23rd edition of the CBS television series The Amazing Race. Playing the dual roles of the 'Caller' and 'Father Mac' will be Totem Pole favorite, Paris Peet, who will lead the audiences at every performance in a live Bingo game with one winner taking home a 10-pound frozen turkey, generously donated by Kennie's Markets.
Single ticket reserved seat prices for this bonus show are $35.00 for all seats. Discount tickets for groups of 10 or more are on sale now by calling the Totem Pole Playhouse Box Office Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at (717) 352-2164.
