Marco’s Community Theatre announces cast for light-hearted fun comedy “Queen of Bingo”

 

 

The Island Players is pleased to announce the cast of “Queen of Bingo” by Jeanne Michaels and Phyllis Murphy.

The Cast includes:

Judith Gangi as Babe

Michelle Langlas as Sis

Jeff Manning as The Bingo Caller

Ray Kane as Father Mac

Where else can two sisters, on the other side of fifty, add a little fun and excitement to their lives? This show is a light-hearted look at the world of Bingo as seen through the eyes of this incredible pair of sisters who live in that world.

On any Bingo night at St.Joseph’s you can find Babe (Gangi), Sis (Langlas), and Father Mac (Kane).  Sis and Babe are not only sisters but best friends who take their Bingo very seriously. They’ve been playing Bingo together for years because they love it.  Sis is a good loser who plays just for the fun of it, while Babe plays to win.  Sis is content in her widowhood while Babe is still looking for love.  They compliment each other in ways only sisters can and they drive each other crazy in the same sisterly way.

On this particular night, they each confess a secret and discover a special kind of redemption as they dish the dirt about winning, losing, diet crazes, and hot flashes while sharing old memories.  Anyone who’s played at a church Bingo hall is sure to recognize these ladies.

Audience members who share their own fondness for the game of chance will have the opportunity to join in and win a prize.  “The audience will be playing Bingo during the show” says Father Mac.  It’s the Play you can Play along with!

“The Queen of Bingo”, co-directed by Scott Lilly and Kevin Moriarty, will run for eight shows over three weekends (May 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 18, & 19) at the Rose History Auditorium, 180 S.
