LATE NITE CATECHISM BRINGS HUMOR TO VITERBO STAGE
LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Get ready for Sister to save your soul in this hilarious satire full of glow-in-the-dark rosaries, audience participation, and wit on Tuesday, Oct. 19 at Viterbo University.
Starting with a summary of heaven and hell that resembles a Catholic version of Chutes and Ladders, Sister makes no exceptions in telling us where we've gone wrong. In a side-splitting mock question and answer period with audience members, Sister will expose her firm belief that "sometimes we feel guilty, because we are guilty."
This attempt to explain Catholic doctrine offers a comedic, but always affectionate, look at old-fashioned religion and our catechismic past.
Maripat Donovan originated the role of Sister in Late Nite Catechism and has since received rave reviews in Chicago, Boston, New York, London, and Dublin as well as earning the LADCC for Best Solo Performance .
Late Nite Catechism is sponsored by Charter Communications and is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin. Performance time is 7:30 p.m. in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre. Tickets are $20.
