Late Nite Catechism at Beverly's Larcom Theatre, April 23 - May 5

The Catholic Explorer calls it, “A ‘habit’-forming hoot!”

Catechism classes are never as much fun - or as hilarious - as when they are led by Sister in the international hit comedy Late Nite Catechism by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan. Late Nite Catechism will be presented at The Larcom Theatre, 13 Wallis St., in Downtown Beverly. Sixteen Performances run April 23rd through May 5th. Tickets are available at or by calling 617-531-1257. Tickets may also be purchased at the door prior to each performance. Generous group discounts for groups of 10 or more are available by calling the ticket hotline as well.

Late Nite Catechism is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back (often nostalgically) to their school days of yesteryear. Your evening at the theatre (or “classroom,” if you prefer) is led by “Sister,” as she teaches an adult catechism class to her “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, resulting in hilarity throughout.

The New York Times declared it, “An uproarious piece of interactive theatre…inspired, well-written and hilarious,” and The Catholic Explorer calls it, “A ‘habit’-forming hoot!”
