CHRISTMAS BINGO: It’s a Ho-Ho-Holy Night
If He Could, St. Nick Would Join the Fun
as this Holiday Comedy Returns
For the 2014 Season
Vicki Quade and Nuns4Fun Entertainment are pleased to announce the return of the hit holiday comedy, Christmas Bingo: It’s a Ho-Ho-Holy Night. Performances are already scheduled for the 2014 holiday season. Christmas Bingo will run for six weeks at the Royal George Theatre, 1641 N. Halsted, Chicago, starting November 28.
In addition, the show will be at:
• St. Ann’s Parish, Lansing, IL, one performance, December 13.
• The Tibbits Opera House, Coldwater, MI, one performance, December 21.
Christmas Bingo was selected in 2013 as one of 10 holidays shows highlighted by Chris Jones, the Chicago Tribune’s theater critic. “This new show includes the chance to play actual games of chance, as hosted by a former nun turned fundraiser (or an actress playing one). Quade produced Late Nite Catechism, and if you’re familiar with that, you’ll get the idea,” Jones wrote.
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 the funniest true and false quiz about St. Nick you’ll ever find. 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 and share the Christmas holidays!
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.” “No matter what the show, Vicki Quade and her entourage totally satisfy the house,” says Charlie Beck, executive director, Metropolis Performing Arts Center, Arlington Heights, which sponsored a production of Christmas Bingo during the 2012 holiday season. “Her performance of Christmas Bingo is a case in point. A packed house and plenty of laughs. Great entertainment.”

Performances will be at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, November 28 through January 4.
