Getting to Know the Cast of Bingo: Camille Van Wagoner (Vern)

Camille Van Wagoner plays the role of Vern, the funny, stubborn, and crusty leader of the bingo group, in Utah's debut of "Bingo" at The Grand Theatre.

Camille was last seen at The Grand Theatre in the 2008 production of Michael McLean's "The Ark." Other Grand productions include: "Pump Boys and Dinettes," "Song of Singapore," " Shear Luck," and "The Pirated Penzance."

She has worked at many of the local theaters, including: Hale Centre Theatre, The Egyptian Theatre, Salt Lake Acting Co., Rogers Memorial Theatre and Pioneer Theatre Company.

Some of her favorite roles include: Dolly in "Hello, Dolly!," Mrs. Lovitt in "Sweeney Todd," Carmen in "Curtains," Penelope Pennywise in "Urinetown" and Rose in "Song of Singapore."

If you haven't had the opportunity to see Camille perform, you won't want to miss "Bingo!" She is an amazing vocalist and actress and truly captures the essence of her characters. We are delighted to have her in this production.

But don't just take our word for it, read what others have said about Camille's past performances:

- "Van Wagoner plays the bossy widow with ease and attitude, whether she's prancing across the stage narrating the action or handing out calling cards to guide those less fortunate than her." (Review of "Hello Dolly" - Roxanna Orellana, Salt Lake Tribune, 2009)

- "Mrs. Lovett is uproariously portrayed by Camille Van Wagoner, whose performance stands far alone in the limelight." (Review of "Sweeney Todd" - Chuck Bunch, Q Salt Lake, 2007)

- "...Van Wagoner sizzles in "Be Good or Be Gone," putting Jim squarely in his place after he stands her up." (Review of "Pump Boys and Dinettes" - Ivan Lincoln, Deseret News, 2006)
