We’re announcing a kind of informal contest to help
re-brand the comedy, Bible Bingo.
There are prizes.
Back in 2011 when Bible Bingo was created, the idea was to have a show about the culture of bingo, where audience members learned something about religion, had some laughs, and played actual games of bingo.
The tag line was: An Act of Charity…in Two Acts!
Seems some people still don’t get that this is an actual play. So we’re trying out a new tag line:
Bible Bingo: A Comedy with God, Games, & Goofy Prizes.
Now we’re open to any other ideas to help people realize it’s a play, not just a night of bingo.
Maybe the tag line will work. Maybe there’s something better. Either way, let us know your thoughts. If we like something, we’ll send you your very own traveling bingo game! What could be more fun!
Bible Bingo is a comedy written by Vicki Quade 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.
Now in its second year at the Royal George Theater in Chicago, the Chicago Stage Standard calls the show, “A fresh new twist on bingo.” New City Chicago raves, “the show is filled with Catholic humor.”
“Bible Bingo is a really good show,” says Theatre by Numbers. “A number of people get together to have some munchies and drinks. They play a few rounds of Bingo while they laugh, sing, chat, and goof around. It is a beautiful thing.”
The role is shared by four performers: Vicki Quade, Kathleen Puls Andrade, Michelle Renee Thompson, and Cheryl Roy.
Still running every weekend: the smash hit comedy Late Nite Catechism, written by Vicki Quade & Maripat Donovan, is starting its 22nd year in Chicago, one of the longest running shows ever. The role of “Sister” is shared by Lisa Braatz, Lisa Buscani, Liz Cloud, Pat Musker, and Mary Zentmyer.
Go ahead…. resurrect your social life in this guaranteed night of divine entertainment!
More fun than Sodom and Gomorrah!!
So much fun, you’ll have to confess it!!!
