Easter Bunny Bingo: Jesus, Resurrection, & Peeps!

Returns to the Greenhouse Theater Center

For the 2023 Lenten Season

March 3 through April 8


Is it a sin to answer your cell phone during Mass? Can you text your confession to your priest? Is it a sin to eat meat on a Friday during Lent? You’ll learn the answers to these and more as Vicki Quade’s comedy: Easter Bunny Bingo: Jesus, Resurrection, & Peeps!, which returns on March 3, just in time for the Easter season, at the Greenhouse Theater Center, Chicago.

The premise is that Mrs. Mary Margaret O’Brien, a former nun, is here tonight to play bingo and talk about Easter traditions, why Easter is never on the same day, the history of no-meat Fridays, why we either love or hate Peeps, Easter movies, and much more!

It’s a crazy night of Easter trivia, audience interaction, and a wacky contest all built about the concept of sin!  Add to that a box of wacky prizes, some Easter candy, fun bingo cards, and a lot of Catholic humor for a night of entertainment you’ll never forget. And in this interactive bingo show, you’ll actually play bingo. What could be more fun?! You’ll be laughing so hard, you’ll have to be careful watching your bingo cards!

Sharing the role of Mrs. O’Brien on stage will be the show’s creator, Vicki Quade, and veteran Chicago comedy actresses Liz Cloud and Nancy Greco.

Easter Bunny Bingo is the latest installment in Quade’s bingo series, which also includes the long-running hits Bible Bingo, Christmas Bingo, and the Halloween comedy, Holy Ghost Bingo. She is also the co-creator of the long-running hit comedy, Late Nite Catechism, and a host of other religious comedies.

“As the creator of  Late Nite Catechism, Vicki Quade knows a thing or two about what makes a one-person show successful,” says Pioneer Press, Chicago.

Easter Bunny Bingo will run for six weeks only during the Lenten season, starting Friday, March 3, through Saturday, April 8. There is no show on Easter Sunday. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. All performances are at the Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago.

 MEANWHILE: Add This to Your Reading List!

For years, Chicagoan Vicki Quade has been telling stories as a journalist, playwright, theater producer, and performer. So it’s not surprising she has a way of connecting with quirky characters during mundane, everyday occurrences.

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF A CHICAGO KIND is a compilation of those stories, examining the lives that brush past her on city streets, in banks, at the grocery store or in restaurants. With a sharp wit and empathetic skill, Quade colorfully recreates brief scenarios that range from the comic to the bizarre to the dangerous – and all are unique to the spirit of the Windy City.

“Vicki Quade is a Chicago treasure with an abiding curiosity about the world around her, and sprinkled among these fly-on-the-wall stories are some valuable tips on things to see and experiences to have in our great city.” — Will Clinger, Producer and Host of WILD TRAVELS, a TV show that airs nationally on PBS.

“Anyone who loves or wants to know Chicago will enjoy Vicki’s keen humor and vivid memories. They invite us to find new ways to live and laugh, especially during this pandemic isolation. Maybe it will encourage some to write their own memories of human encounters!”

— Sister Patricia Crowley, O.S.B., Benedictine Sisters of Chicago
