Jenny Harrison

Yellow Point production features laughs

The Queen of Bingo opens tonight (Oct. 2) and will run on Oct. 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18 at Cedar Hall.

Find out what happens when two sisters duke it out over a game of bingo in the Yellow Point Drama Group’s latest production, The Queen of Bingo.

“It’s a fun evening out,” said director Pat Zogar. “It’s quite light. For those that aren’t into real heavy emotional theatre, this is a good introduction.”

The Queen of Bingo is focused around two sisters, Sis, played by Jenny Harrison and Babe, played Georgina Duval, who bicker with each during games of bingo.

“One of has a weight problem and she has been kind of hiding out because of that problem,”  Zogar said. “The other sister is  older and she widowed and she plays bingo every day as a way to keep herself busy.”

The play touches on a few themes.

“It’s a laugh,” Zogars aid. “But it also has some nice subtle problems about weight problems and aging and that kind of thing.”

Audience members who attend The Queen of Bingo will also participate in a game of bingo, with the winner receiving entry to a draw for a Thanksgiving turkey.

The Queen of Bingo opens tonight (Oct. 2) and will run on Oct. 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18 at Cedar Hall, 2388 Cedar Rd. Tickets are $17 for adults and $12 for youth. For more information, please visit www.yellowpointdramagroup.org.
