In the New Comedy: Movie Bingo!
Vicki Quade, co-creator of the hit comedy, Late Nite Catechism, brings to life a new comedy, Movie Bingo: Good, Bad, or Condemned?!
In this interactive comedy, Ms. Quade's uses her latest character, Mrs. Mary Margaret O'Brien, a former nun herself, to show the audience the difference!
The premise of Movie Bingo is simple: Father Murphy has scheduled a lecture: Would You Take Jesus to the Movies? But Father Murphy isn't here tonight….Mrs. O'Brien is! And it's up to her to teach this class.
Using her love of movies and bingo, and a lot of Catholic humor, she engages the audience in actual games of bingo built around some of her favorite movies! Add to that a box of wacky prizes, fun bingo cards, and lessons on what it means to be Catholic!
Movie Bingo is extremely topical and changes with every performance. You'll be laughing so hard, you'll have to be careful watching your bingo cards!
The proceeds from a recent performance of Movie Bingo: Good, Bad, or Condemned?! helped to benefit elementary school children in Haiti.
Using the comedy as a fundraiser, St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Naperville, IL,
has a sold-out performance.
“We had a great time,” said Mark Quinn, a parishioner who was in the audience. “Your “Who’s In Heaven, Who’s in Hell” bit is terrific.
In 1999, Duchity, Haiti, had one public elementary school with 550 students taught by four teachers. Fourteen years later, the public school system now boasts three schools with 36 teachers and more than 1,300 students.
Parishioners at St. Thomas the Apostle have raised more than $50,000 annually for several years to help make that a reality for those elementary school children.
