Sept. 14, 2004

KALAMAZOO--The long-awaited sequel to the comedy hit "Late Nite Catechism" comes to Shaw Theatre at Western Michigan University for eight performances Tuesday through Sunday, Sept. 21-26.

Showtimes for "Late Night Catechism 2" are 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, Sept. 21-23; 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24; 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25; and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 26.

Sister is back! With the blessings of the archdiocese, Sister has assembled banners, filmstrips, mimeographed handouts, historical facts and hysterical insights as she conducts her class into convulsions of laughter. Picking up where she left off in "Late Nite Catechism,"

Sister begins with an affectionate look at women's religious orders, which leads to her own 'confession' about the goal of every nun--to get herself into heaven first and then bring along as many of the faithful as possible, thereby securing her own wings and possibly the salvation of countless others. Sister is, therefore, determined to save the souls of those assembled--the audience. Beginning with an overview of heaven and hell as a Catholic version of Chutes and Ladders and moving onto her proclamation of new sins for the new millennium, Sister is never hesitant to tell us where we've gone wrong.

Maripat Donovan's "Late Nite Catechsim 2" has all the wit, wisdom and wackiness that has made "Late Nite Catechism" such a hit with audiences everywhere.

"Late Night Catechism 2" launches Miller Auditorium's Broadway in West Michigan Series for 2004-05 and is sponsored by WWMT TV3, WKFR 103.3 FM and Lake Michigan Mailers.
