Yellow Point Drama Group's fall play The Queen of Bingo

Plays for Laughs October 2 to 18 at Cedar Hall

Two competitive sisters duke it out with daubers and off-beat quips in the Yellow Point Drama Group fall production of the fun-loving, heart-warming comedy The Queen of Bingo, running over three weekends October 2 to 18 at Cedar Hall. 

Written by Jeanne Michels and Phyllis Murphy, the play is directed by Yellow Point Drama Group member Patricia Zogar, who last starred in YPDG’s production of Seeing Stars in Dixie and is being produced by Joanne and Bruce Rowland.

Bingo superstitions are front and centre as Sis (Jenny Harrison) and Babe (Georgina Duval) ramp up the excitement in their lives playing bingo at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church where they bicker and banter with Father Mac (Terry Whittaker).  Silver-tongued bingo caller (Torry Clark) calls the plays while the siblings explore everything from hot flashes to diet crazes, family ties to middle-aged singlehood.

At intermission, the audience will receive cards and daubers to take part in a prize-winning bingo game, competing for a Thanksgiving turkey donated by 49th Parallel Grocery in Cedar.

The Queen of Bingo previews on Thursday, October 2 and runs on Friday and Saturday, October 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18. Doors open at 7 pm and show time is 8 pm. A matinee performance will be held on Saturday, October 18; doors open at 1 and show time is 2 pm.  Tickets are $17 for adults; $12 for youth, the preview, and matinee. Tickets are available at the door at Cedar Hall, 2388 Cedar Road, by phone at 250-753-9292 or by emailing

Yellow Point Drama Group—the second oldest theatre group in BC—got its start in the early 1950s when former opera singer, leading director of drama, and elocution teacher, Anne Mossman moved to Yellow Point from Vancouver. Her enthusiasm for the dramatic arts was contagious and she soon enlisted a nucleus of Cedar and Yellow Point locals to produce YPDG’s first season comprised of three one-act plays: Waltz Time, Dear Departed, and Which Way is the Way to Boston?. The trio of plays went on to win best acting and best directed awards at various Vancouver Island drama festivals.

Fresh from its success, the amateur troupe went on to officially form Yellow Point Drama Group in 1953, and in the 60 years since, has marked a number of successful theatrical milestones, winning numerous festival awards along the way for the quality of its acting, direction, costumes and set design.
