Opera House to present audience participation show — Bible Bingo
The 1891 Fredonia Opera House will present the uproarious comedy show, Bible Bingo, on Sunday, Apr. 27, at 3 p.m.
A uniquely funny stage show that incorporates a lot of audience participation, Bible Bingo is the latest in a series of shows from Vicki Quade, creator of the hit comedy. The show presents a riotous night of Bible trivia, audience interaction, wacky prizes, Catholic humor and, of course, Bingo!
The premise is that the local parish needs money, so the pastor decides to call in Mrs. Mary Margaret O’Brien, a former nun who now heads the fund-raising department for the archdiocese. Ever-ready to help, Mrs. O’Brien resorts to the Catholic Church’s reliable standby Bingo! But not your usual game of bingo, mind you. Mrs. O’Brien’s bingo incorporates religious themes, humor and the funniest quiz about the Holy Family you’ve ever heard!
During the show, audience members actually play several games of bingo and compete for wacky prizes. But watch your cards carefully, for a false Bingo results in an embarrassing trip to the penalty chair!
The show will have audience members talking about everything from Adam & Eve to modern sin! Called “a masterful insight into the idiosyncrasies of the Catholic Church” and “more fun than Sodom and Gomorrah,” is a guaranteed night of divine entertainment!
Reserved seating tickets to Bible Bingo are $27 ($25 Opera House members) and may be purchased in person at the Opera House Box Office or by phone at 679-1891, Tuesday through Friday, 1-5 p.m. They also may be purchased online any time at www.fredopera.org. The performance is presented, in part, with support from the United Arts Appeal of Chautauqua County.
