“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.
The show is at 8 p.m. in the Celebrity Showroom. Tickets cost $40 and can be purchased online at www.janugget.com or by calling 356-3300.
