Nuns4Fun Returns for Fall 2022

With Five Comedies

Guaranteed to Help You Laugh Your Sins Off!

 

Nuns. Bingo. A New Game Show. Laughter. Goofy Prizes.

Vicki Quade and Nuns4Fun Entertainment are proud to announce their Fall 2022 season will include five of their best loved religious comedies. Shows will be performed every weekend at the Greenhouse Theater Center in Chicago.

* In September, the featured comedies will be the long-running hits, Late Nite Catechism, which has been called “gloriously funny” and is now in its 29th year in Chicago.

Also in September, Nuns4Fun is bringing back Bible Bingo, a comedy about the Catholic culture of fundraising and bingo. The Chicago Tribune promises “interactive fun.” 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 October, the hit comedy, Holy Ghost Bingo: God, Goblins, & Games, returns for the Halloween season.  “A hilarious Halloween interactive comedy,” says Teme Ring of ChicagoNow. “You don’t have to be Catholic to love Holy Ghost Bingo.  It was an afternoon of comedy, stories, and camaraderie, and an inspiring reminder of the fun to be had when you focus on life’s treats.”

* In November, the newest comedy game show, Are You Smarter Than Your 8th Grade Nun?, returns for only three weeks. This new show has been highly recommended. “Loosely based on the TV show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? but it’s more like, Who Wants to Get Out of Purgatory? “says Around The Town, Chicago.

* In December, Nuns4Fun offers its holiday classic, Christmas Bingo:  It’s a Ho-Ho-Holy Night. The comedy has been a fixture in Chicago since 2012. 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 a clever re-creation of the Annunciation, complete with audience members in angel wings and halos.

All shows at the Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago.

Show times are: Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m.

Late Nite Catechism will continue running  at 5 p.m., Saturdays.

Tickets: $35. For tickets or more information, call the box office at 773-404-7336, or visit www.greenhousetheater.org.

 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
