LOS ANGELES – Don’t miss the world premiere of Dillon Chitto’s new stage comedy, Bingo Hall! Edward Anaya makes all the calls in the pueblo—well, he calls the numbers at the senior center’s bimonthly bingo. But college acceptance letters kick-start an identity crisis: Who will Edward be if he leaves home and bingo behind? Like Ferris Bueller if he lived in a pueblo, Edward knows just what to say until romantic rejection, family antics, and community pressures leave him tongue-tied. Playwright Dillon Chitto brings the pueblo to the American theatre in this hilarious new play about tradition in a fast-changing world.
Friday, March 9, 8:00 p.m.
A reception with the cast and crew follows the Opening Night performance.
