Late Nite Catechism on Stage at the PAC
Celebrate April Fools Day by attending the hilarious and interactive comedy Late Nite Catechism at the Kent State Tuscarawas Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. on April 1.
Late Nite Catechism is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back - sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully to the children they once were. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of “students” (the audience). Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor, rewarding the “students” for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, to authoritative drill sergeant. These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school, with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm.
Late Nite Catechism, written by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan, made its debut in 1993 at the Live Bait Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. It has been presented in over 410 cities around the world, has played six countries with more than 3.5 million people in attendance. The show has raised more than $4 million for retired Sisters and Catholic Organizations.
Tickets range in price from $25-$34 and can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center box office, online at www.kent.edu/tusc/pac or by calling 330-308-6400.
