Whether or not you attended Catholic school or catechism classes, you’re probably familiar with the imposing figure of the teacher nun. Dressed in a freshly-pressed habit, gazing sternly from the front of the class, seemingly intent on catching someone, anyone, out of place.
But when you attend Sister’s Late Night Easter Catechism, the nun before you is nothing like you’d expect.
Sure, she wears a traditional habit, and she can be harsh, possibly cutting, when she speaks. However, this Sister isn’t simply trying to educate the masses; she’s also here to entertain.
Learn About Easter – Sister-style!
Sister’s Easter Catechism: Will My Bunny Go to Heaven? is the most recent addition to the Late Night Catechism series. The one-nun show is part stand up, part scripted play, with a good dose of audience participation thrown in. If you liked Sister’s Back to School Catechism, you’ll definitely love this one!
Originally conceived and written by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan, the Late Night Catechism series debuted in Chicago back in 1993. Since then the series has grossed over $100 million in box office receipts, has been presented in hundreds of cities all over the world, and has expanded to include several other installments of Sister’s brand of Catholic “teachings”.
All the Late Night Catechism shows are uproariously hilarious, dragging audience members on a hysterical – or painful – walk down memory lane. Throughout the performance, Sister switches between benevolent instructor who rewards her “students” for answering correctly, to authoritative drill sergeant.
Since the original incarnation of Late Night Catechism, more than 100 actresses and comedians have played the part of Sister in the eight different shows.
During the performance of Sister’s Easter Catechism, Sister will lead her “class” through lessons about the Easter holiday. She’ll answer questions like “Why does Lent exist?”, “Do animals really go to Heaven?”, and “Why isn’t Easter the same day every year like Christmas?”. She’ll also dive into sinfully silly topics like the origin of the Easter bunny, why we wear Easter bonnets, and the origin of marshmallowy Peeps.
Don’t miss this creative twist on Catholic “education” that’s wHOLY hilarious. Dust off your rosaries and get ready for the divine comedy of Sister as she shines up her ruler and teaches her “class” all about Easter!
