Where can two sisters on the other side of fifty go to add a little zest, fun and excitement to their lives? Bingo! Set at Bingo night in St Joseph's Catholic Church in Battle Creek, Michigan. Two sisters, Babe and Sis, spend the evening playing Bingo, dishing dirt and giggling like school girls as they discuss family ties, diet crazes, widowhood, and hot flashes. Through their eyes, the audience meets Father Mac, Coach Anderson and many off beat colorful Bingo regulars.

Auditions for Self-Help
ACME Theater is proud to announce it will be holding auditions for SELF-HELP by Norm Foster, directed by Kevin Nessman, at 7 PM on June 7th and 9th.
SELF-HELP is a fast-paced farce about two down-on-their-luck actors who become sensations as self-help gurus. Most of the action takes place in their mansion shortly after Hal Savage discovers Cindy Savage, his wife, in the arms of their amorous gardener. Hal and Cindy face a crisis in their marriage that for professional reasons they must keep secret from their slow-witted maid, their wise-cracking agent, a melancholy police officer investigating the gardener, and a devious investigative reporter out to prove the Savage’s are frauds. The action is fast-paced and includes a lot of physical comedy, double-entendres, and mistaken identities. Click here for more information.

Acme Theater Productions
For more than 20 years, Acme has been an active part of the local community, providing high-quality productions to the public at a price that makes them accessible to everyone. We’re excited about our 2014-2015 offerings and delighted to continue to provide world-class theater to our patrons.
But we can’t do it without your help.
Our tickets sales and returning audience members let us know we are succeeding in the quality and diversity of the work we present. But we can’t do any of this without your support! Only about 50% of our operational costs are funded by ticket sales; the rest is covered by donations from people like you who recognize and appreciate the outstanding experience Acme provides at each and every show.
In spite of our limited resources, Acme has consistently been considered one of the top community theaters in the country and has been recognized internationally for the outstanding quality of its productions. We know you appreciate the exceptional work Acme does, and know how important it is to support and encourage our efforts.
I’m asking you to choose a donation level to show not just your encouragement for Acme Theater, but to show that the arts are an important and necessary part of life and our community. Whether $20, or $50, or $100 or more, your contribution matters and helps bring our shows to life.
Acme Theater is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization; 100% of the money received goes directly to the support of quality live theater. Please do whatever you can to help keep the performing arts alive!
