BINGO Jamboree - FAQ in gold letters

IS IT
IMMERSIVE THEATRE?

Yes! BINGO Jamboree is a theatrical experience set inside the fictional Cocksville Town Hall.  From the moment you cross the threshold into our world, you are encouraged to interact with our characters and fellow out-of-towners.  Our hosts Don and Debra Dingleberry help guide you through the night, but there are no rules on how to enjoy their outlandish soirée.

IS IT A
MUSICAL?

 

Yes! BINGO Jamboree is a full-fledged one act musical—a musical with balls, if you will.  Both Don and Debra Dingleberry, as well as the rest of the Cocksville gang, have an awful lot to sing about. 

It's BINGO, after all!

IS IT A REAL GAME?
IS THERE A WINNER?

Yes and yes! The game play within BINGO Jamboree functions like a traditional game of blackout BINGO, but there is nothing traditional about our Jamboree.  One guest will walk away with a crown, a grand prize, and all the glory.  The best part:  it could be you!

DID SOMEONE
SAY PARTY?

Yasss!  If spending a night frolicking with the Dingleberrys wasn't already party enough (and boy, is it), Cocksville's second best amateur DJ is hosting his own super awesome dance party after the winner has been anointed.

 

WHO IS IT
SUITABLE FOR?

Adults love BINGO Jamboree, but they shouldn't bring the kiddos.  The standard version of the show contains grown-up language and late-night humor.

 

 CAN I CUSTOMIZE THE
  NAUGHTY-METER?

BINGO Jamboree's humor is customizable.  While we think it's super cool the way it was written, we know others may gasp when Nanny shouts "make way for the F*@#!NG queen," and we respect that.  The script is flexible and can be adjusted to suit a variety of audiences.

A NOTE ON BINGO

Some of my fondest memories of growing up in small town Ohio are from the annual village BINGO nights over the 4th of July weekend. Smushed between a group of unlikely neighbors with huge, wacky  personalities, these hot summer nights were filled with a type of magic that’s only found in the movies.  

 

Looking back, it was more than just a game. It was an escape for us all—one where the dream of “winning big” was just as real for 8-year-old me as it was for Bob the Mailman down the table.

 

At its core, BINGO Jamboree is about community—a place to find common ground, to discover (and re-discover) your inner winner, and most importantly, to let your freak flag fly! While names and faces may change over time, the stories and shared experiences that define a community, or in our case, a show, are forever. 

With love,

HALFWORLD

Our experiences are rooted in a deep curiosity of the things we love—where theatrical explorations intersect in unexpected places. These pursuits have led us to schemes in the spirit of adventure—communal, sensory, and often playable.

Our creations reshape how we connect with audiences and give way to inspiring moments worth reliving.
