Late Nite Catechism runs every weekend at the Royal George Theatre, 1641 N. Halsted, Chicago. Show times are 5 p.m. Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. Bible Bingo runs at 8 p.m. Fridays and 8 p.m. Saturdays.

In addition, as part of its anniversary year, the show will also be performed at these venues around Chicago:

* July 14-15, North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, Skokie

* October 6, Beverly Arts Center, Chicago

* October 21, Theatre at the Center, Munster, IN

The role of Sister, the wise-cracking, lovable character of LATE NITE CATECHISM, was created by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan, both products of the Catholic school system.

Since opening in 1993 at Live Bait Theatre in Chicago, LATE NITE CATECHISM has seen three popes, three cardinals, four presidents, two Chicago mayors, at least a dozen Chicago area theaters, 20 local actresses, and provided laughter to more than 3.5 million audience members in more than 410 cities, playing in six countries on four continents. Worldwide, the show has grossed more than $100 million in box office receipts.

In addition, LATE NITE CATECHISM has helped raise more than $3 million for the retirement funds of various orders of nuns.

Call it Carol Burnett meets Whoopi Goldberg. This interactive comedy is part catechism class, part stand-up routine. Ruling her classroom with an iron fist, Sister teaches her students – who happen to be the audience – everything she knows about saints, sin, heaven and hell…while dolling out rewards and reprimands with lightning speed.

The New York Times calls it “hilarious, well-written and inspired.” The Chicago Reader calls it “a top-notch comedy.” Jeffrey Lyons from TV’s Sneak Previews called LATE NITE CATECHISM “something to savor and enjoy….one of the most intimate, rewarding shows in town.”
