Jeanne Michels and Phyllis Murphy's The Queen of Bingo explores the worlds of Bingo, family ties, diet crazes, widowhood, hot flashes and winning! The audience joins in the fun during the "Middle Bird Special" - a real Bingo game where some lucky audience member wins a Prize at every performance! Theatergoers young and old will howl with laughter as two zany guys, playing two crazy gals, light up the stage in the comedy hit The Queen of Bingo!

The Queen of Bingo Press Release

A Note from the Artistic Director...

Welcome to our 23rd Anniversary Season!  When they first opened the doors 22 years ago, Richard and Donna never dreamed that they could grow this business into one of the top ten destinations in Fountain County! We have welcomed thousands of guests into our family over the years, and although our theatre and staff have evolved, the core set of values Myers Dinner Theatre prides itself on has remained blissfully intact. Whether you are joining us for the first time, or a returning guest, we always delight in welcoming you to Hillsboro. In an era in which technology isolates us, and politics thrive on divisiveness, it becomes more necessary than ever for us to realize that underneath it all, we are capable of kindness, generosity, love, and binding together as a family to share in the joy of our community. There is no better way to accomplish this than by watching Art come to life in a theater. I am deeply grateful to all of our Patrons for continuing to support our “Little Theatre That Could,” and we hope you will enjoy our 2019 Season!
