Spring Musical

Our Spring Musical, Bingo! A Winning Musical, will be held on March 10, 11 and 12 at 7 p.m. at Newcomerstown Middle School. From our director, Mr. Wise:

Bingo is a splashy, zippy, fun new musical comedy with a big heart. Bingo is about a group of die-hard bingo players who stop at nothing to miss their weekly game.

In between the number calling, strange rituals and fierce competitions, love blossoms and long lost friends reunite. The lovable characters spring to life with a smart, funny script and a bouncy, hummable score. The audience will be laughing in the aisles when they aren't playing games of bingo along with the cast!
