Sister is back in black (with wimple)! After nearly seven years, the original Late Nite Catechism returns to City Theatre for a limited engagement in the Hamburg Studio Theatre. If you’ve skipped class all these years, now’s your chance to see the show that started it all! Grab your rosary, spit out your gum, and get ready for Sister’s hilarious mix of comedy, nostalgia, and old school Catholic cool. She’s a hard habit to break.
