To be in "Sister's" class you must sit up straight, put both feet on the floor and PAY ATTENTION!  You are back in class with your school uniform scratching you knees and the gum you just swallowed in sliding too slowly down your throat.

Late Nite Catechism is a one-woman show starring one of Australia's funniest actresses, Sally-Ann Upton. 

Late Nite Catechism is guaranteed to bring forth gales of laughter from Catholics and non-Catholics alike.  The audience is sent back to school, inside the Church of St Bruno's for either a refresher course or introductory lecture, depending on your background.  "Sister" is a nun's nun, but wise in ways of the world.  Leading her class through the mysteries of the Trinity, she explains many of the more puzzling aspects of Vatican thinking, such as how St Joseph can help you sell your house.

Unlike other plays, which have focused on Catholic eduction, Late Nite Catechism does not set out to ridicule its subjects but instead mocks it with great affection and intelligence.  By the end of this crash course in Catholic culture, everyone wants to be in Sister's class with clever students winning laminated Mass cards and glow-in-the-dark rosaries. 

Late Nite Catechism is now an international phenomenon having played throughout the USA including 8 years in Chicago.  It is currently still playing on Broadway and was first staged in Australia in 1996 at the Parramatta Riverside where it played a season of 6 months followed by another 6 month season at the Seymour Centre.

This is one of the funniest plays to come to the Nambour Civic Centre.  There are two performances, Friday 30th April and Saturday 1st May at 8pm.  Seats in class are limited so book early.  Ph 5475 7777
