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:

• Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater, Lewisville, TX, on December 12.

• St. Ann’s Parish, Lansing, IL, on December 13.

• The Tibbits Opera House, Coldwater, MI, on 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.”

Today’s Fan, an online review site, calls Christmas Bingo, “delightful.” “Comedic actress Vicki Quade is in rare form,” the review states. “She plays a former nun in charge of the archdiocese’s bingo fundraising, portraying her character as a stern taskmaster. 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 at the Royal George Theater, Chicago. Group discounts are available. For tickets, call the box office at (312) 988-9000.

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