In between the number calling, strange rituals and fierce competitions, love blossoms and long lost friends reunite. These lovable characters spring to life with a smart, funny script and bouncy, hummable score. Audiences will be laughing in the aisles when they aren't playing games of bingo along with the cast!
    The show will be performed in the Conference Center of the Doubletree Hotel on Penn St in Reading , PA and will run from June 15 th through June 17 th, 2017.


    Auditions for "BINGO the Musical" were held at the RCT Hall on N. 10 th street on Sunday April 9th and Monday April 10th at 7:00 PM. At this time there are still open roles available for the show. Anyone interested please contact the Director of the show - Brian Miller at Here is a character breakdown for the show.
