Emporia State University Summer Theatre Opens Season 59 with
BINGO! The Winning Musical

 

 

The 59th season of ESU Summer Theatre opens Wednesday June 12, 2013 with Bingo! The Winning Musical.  A musical comedy by Michael Heitzman, Ilene Reid, and David Holcenberg, the show is suitable for all ages. Audiences will be laughing in the aisles when they aren’t playing Bingo along with the cast for prizes provided by local merchants!

 

The loveable characters will stop at nothing to participate in their weekly Bingo game. Vern (Marah Melvin, Senior, Iola), Honey (Madison Hoge, Junior, University of Nebraska- Kearney) and Patsy (Lauren Smith, Junior, University of Central Missouri) gather for the yearly celebration of the birth of Bingo and its founder, Edwin S. Lowe. When a storm knocks out power at the Bingo Hall, Patsy and Honey remind each other of a night that began in the same way fifteen years ago. 

 

In flashback, Honey tells us about the night Vern and Bernice (Alum Erin Gilmore, Emporia) had a falling out. Her daughter Alison (Miranda Nation, Sophomore, Winfield) enters the Bingo hall in disguise in an attempt to bring Vern and her mother back together.  Supporting performers are John Lloyd Stafford III (Sophomore, Drury University), Andrew McCutcheon (Junior, Gardener), Landon Noll (Junior, Winchester) and Mack Melvin (Junior, Iola).

 

Bingo! The Winning Musical is under the direction of Jim and Lindy Bartruff.  Alums Anna Ryan and Emily Kasprzak return, as music director and costume designer.  Emily is now the Director of Theatre at Neosho Community College.  May 2013 grad Noah Mefford (Burlington) is the Lighting Designer.  Junior Mark Warner (Senior, Salina) and Jim Bartruff collaborated to design the set.  Lexey Jost (Senior, Hutchinson) is the propmaster and Senior Samaria Fleig (Emporia) is the production stage manager.

 

Bingo! The Winning Musical will be presented at the Karl C. Bruder Theatre June 12th through June 15th.  Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Individual tickets and season passes are available from the university box office at 620-341-6378.
