From Samuel French:
Best friends and Bingo pals Vern, Honey and Patsy brave a terrible storm in order to attend the
yearly celebration of the birth of Bingo and tribute to its founder, Edwin S. Lowe. As the storm
knocks out power at the Bingo Hall, Patsy and Honey remind each other of the ominous night fifteen
years ago that began in the same way. In flashback, Honey tells us about the night Vern and her
best friend, Bernice, had their falling out. Bernice's sweet, yet headstrong daughter, Alison,
enters the Bingo hall in disguise - Bernice's health is failing, and Alison is determined, with the
help of Bingo, to reunite her mother with her long-lost best friend.
"Popcorn, friendship, intrigue and a famous five-letter word. Bingo turns Grandma's favorite form
of gambling into fun-loving musical theater." - The New York Times
"The score is bouncy and well-crafted. An exportable small-theater concoction a la Forever Plaid."
"A deceptively witty book and spirited performances - creating a hilarious portrait of a peculiar
competitive event, much in the way The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee did for elementary
school spellers." - The Associated Press
"Songs to bring down the house!" - Los Angeles Times
"Warm-hearted, witty, musical comedy!" - Chicago Tribune
"A show the whole family can enjoy." - Sun Sentinel Miami/Ft. Lauderdale
"Heitzman, Reid and Holcenberg's new musical comedy finds its heart, soul, and humor in a game that
can be heard emanating from every church auditorium, high school cafeteria, and social hall across
America." - The Beach Reporter, Hermosa Beach, CA
