Hit Comedy, Bible Bingo, Arrives from Chicago

Sunday, February 11

At the Effingham Performance Center


Bingo. Laughter. Goofy Prizes. And a bit of the Bible!

Toss in some chocolate and you have a terrific Valentine’s celebration.

Vicki Quade and Nuns4Fun Entertainment are proud to announce they are bringing the hit comedy, Bible Bingo: A Comedy with God, Games & Goofy Prizes, to the Effingham Performance Center on February 11, for one performance only.

Show time is 3 p.m.

Bible Bingo is a comedy 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. It’s written by Vicki Quade, one of the creators of the international hit comedy, Late Nite Catechism.

Featured in the New York Times, Bible Bingo is described this way: “The show features improv, Broadway show-tune singalongs, onstage audience-participation quizzes about the Bible and, yes, bingo. Prizes include glow-in-the-dark rosaries and Jesus car fresheners that smell like olive trees.”

The Chicago Stage Standard calls the show, “A fresh new twist on bingo.” New City Chicago raves, “the show is filled with Catholic humor.”

In this interactive comedy, the parish needs money and Mrs. O’Brien is ready to help! Bring the two together and you have a night of bible trivia, audience interaction, improvised moments, and the funniest quiz about the Holy Family you’ve ever seen.

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! The show gets the audience talking about everything from Adam & Eve to modern sins.

You’ll be laughing so hard, you’ll have to be careful watching your bingo cards!

“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.”

Tickets are $30.

For tickets, call the theater box office at (217) 540-2788.
