“Bingo is about winning and THE QUEEN OF BINGO is a jackpot of a show” — Bingo Bugle
Where can two sisters on the other side of fifty, who want to add a little zest, fun and excitement to their lives, find it? Bingo!
On any Bingo night at St. Joseph’s, you can find Father Mac, Lonnie and Cindy Conklin, Marge Meranski, Coach Anderson, and the many offbeat, colourful regulars we meet through the eyes of Sis and Babe. They dish the dirt, giggle like school girls and share old memories.
Sis and Babe are sisters and best friends. They’ve been coming to play Bingo together for years because they love it. Sis is a good loser who just loves to play. Babe is a player who has always got to win. Sis is naturally fit and trim. Babe is naturally overweight and always fighting the battle of the bulge. Sis is content in her widowhood. Babe is still looking for love. They compliment each other in ways only sisters can and they drive each other crazy in that same sisterly fashion.
On this particular night, Babe and Sis share something new as they each confess a secret and find a special kind of redemption.
Mini Fridge audiences can join in on the fun during the "Middle Bird Special" — a 'real' Bingo game where a lucky audience member wins a free prize at every performance!
