‘Movie Bingo’ headed to St. Mary’s Sycamore

Vicki Quade, co-creator of the hit comedy, “Late Nite Catechism,” brings to life a new comedy, “Movie Bingo: Good, Bad or Condemned?” The show is coming to St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Sycamore on Feb. 16.

In this interactive comedy, Quade uses her latest character, Mrs. Mary Margaret O’Brien, a former nun herself, to show the audience the difference in the movies they are watching.

The premise of “Movie Bing” is simple: Father Murphy has scheduled a lecture: Would You Take Jesus to the Movies? But Father Murphy isn’t here ... 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.

The show will be held at 2 p.m. Feb. 16 at the Parish Activity Center, 244 Waterman St., in Sycamore. Tickets cost $20 in advance ($15 for seniors) and can be purchased at the parish or school office. Tickets cost $25 at the door the day of the event.
