Me Love Bingo! Best in Snow

Grab your daubers and settle in for a holiday experience like no other! Me Love Bingo!: Best in Snow arrives at Vancouver’s Newmont Stage at the BMO Theatre Centre from December 1 through January 1, 2023.

Join your drag-clad host (Kyle Loven) and guest assistants (Leslie Dos RemediosJenna KleinJoey Lespérance) in a campy adventure with games, wacky prizes, sweet tunes and lots of surprises. Taking the old-timey game of luck and adding hilarious storytelling and a whole lot of heart, Me Love Bingo!: Best in Snowsends theatre-goers on an inclusive and collective journey filled to the brim with laughs, community and connection.

Since its inception in 2014, the Me Love BINGO! project has been presented in Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, Kelowna, and Victoria—from bike repair bars in Portland and converted churches in Kelowna to Strathcona’s Russian Hall and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Past themes have taken audiences on road trips, to the World Championships of Bingo, and all over the calendar to celebrate several holidays. The brand-new Arts Club production amps up the shenanigans with even more delights and features four talented local cast members—the largest group of performers yet.

On the history of Me Love BINGO! and this latest festive instalment, creator, star, and director Kyle Loven said, “Me Love BINGO! began in my living room as a simple way to bring people together. Throughout its evolution, including this newest and biggest version for the Arts Club, the experience has always been about community-building. As a queer person who really loves the holidays, I’m excited that we get to offer a very unconventional festive gathering: one that invites everyone to the table.”

Arts Club’s Artistic Director Ashlie Corcoran also added, “The piece presents itself as a ridiculously fun drag bingo extravaganza—but beneath the layers of silliness and levity lives a sophisticatedly constructed and moving piece. Guided through this work by Kyle’s generosity, grace, and wit, audience members are sure to have an unforgettable experience!”
