CHRISTMAS BINGO Comes To Houston
Vicki Quade brings her hit holiday comedy, Christmas Bingo: It's a Ho-Ho-Holy Night, to Houston, for three weeks only, at the Chelsea Market Theatre, 4617 Montrose, starting December 6, for the 2018 holiday season.
Sponsored by the Caduceus Theater Arts Company, the production runs Thursday through Sunday, Dec. 6-16, then Dec. 27-30, 2018.
Show times are: Thursdays to Saturdays, 8 p,m., and 2 p.m. Sundays.
Written and performed by Vicki Quade, co-creator of the comedy, Late Nite Catechism, Christmas Bingo is the second installment in Quade's bingo series, which also includes the long-running hit Bible Bingo. The show was selected as one of 10 holiday shows highlighted by Chris Jones, the Chicago Tribune's theater critic.
In this interactive comedy, audience members play bingo while also answering questions about Christmas traditions, the origin of St. Nick, where do candy canes come from, miracles in the Bible . . . and a clever re-creation of the Annunciation, complete with audience members in angel wings and halos.
In its review, The Chicago Reader recommended the show, saying, "Vicki Quade has made a career out of Catholic comedy (Late Nite Catechism, Bible Bingo), and she's in top form here."
Today's Fan, an online review site, calls Christmas Bingo, "delightful." "You will be engaged by the show's uniquely interactive approach that involves a bingo game with real prizes. Its entertaining aspect comes from the hilarity that ensues as Quade tackles off-beat myths and outrageous facts about Christmas."
Tickets are $30, and $22 for students and seniors. There are discounts for groups.
