Bingo, the Musical
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 the 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 a flashback, Honey tells 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 friend.  Part of the fun during the performance includes the audience-participation BINGO!

In A Talent for Murder, we have a suspenseful drama featuring an internationally successful mystery novelist whose relatives wouldn’t mind killing her to get their hands on her extensive art collection. Other characters include a live-in doctor who was once the novelist’s lover, and a savvy Indian butler. The play includes a great plenty of comic relief from the mayhem being planned by the family. Come along for the ride and enjoy the plot twists so common in every murder-mystery.

Greater Tuna

What do Arles Stuvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye and Rev. Spikes have in common? In this hilarious send-up of small town mores and morals, they are all among the upstanding citizens of Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas. This long-running off-Broadway hit features two actors creating the entire population of Tuna in a tour-de-force of quick change artistry, changing costumes and characters faster than a jack rabbit runs from a coyote. It is an evening with two actors, twenty characters, 48 costume changes, and a barrel of laughs, y’all.
