So glad to announce that the one act musical I’ve written “Bingo Ladies”, will receive it’s World Premiere at Lunchbox Theatre in April of 2014. I grew up in Calgary always wanting to work with Lunchbox, so when Artistic Director Pamela Halstead contacted me last May asking if I could write a musical based on one of the ideas I’d submitted for their Stage One Development series I jumped at the chance. We had the workshop that June and I had an amazing time with the three actresses involved. And now… it’s hitting the boards! I love the description of the piece on their website:
Bingo is serious business. Rituals, good luck charms, superstitions. Friday night at the bingo hall is sacred. But are our three intrepid bingo ladies addicts, or just enthusiastic? How far are they willing to go to win? Bingo Ladies explores their lives with rousing musical numbers and shows us the humanity of the bingo hall.
I’m also working on a full length version of the musical, so stay tuned.
