Take a chance on comedy with ‘Late Nite Catechism Las Vegas’!

January 26, 2018

It’s a safe bet – holy humor awaits when “Late Nite Catechism Las Vegas: Sister Rolls the Dice” comes to the Michael Baughman Theatre, Potter Center, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24.

“Late Nite Catechism Las Vegas: Sister Rolls the Dice” is another installment in the sinfully funny Catechism series. The convent needs a new roof, so the order has decided that Sister (with her extensive gambling experience running the church Bingo for the last 25 years) will organize a Las Vegas night! Sister will tackle topics ranging from magicians and show girls to live animal acts and the dangers of drive-through marriage chapels. Don’t forget: What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but God sees everything! This uproarious piece of theater takes audience members back – sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully – to the children they once were. The Naples News calls it sharp, witty and spectacularly brilliant and says: “Anyone from Buddhists to Zoroastrians will enjoy attending this Late Nite Catechism.”

The original “Late Nite Catechism” was first presented in 1993, co-written by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan. Today there are eight shows in the “Late Nite Catechism” series, which has grossed more than $100 million in box office receipts. The “Late Nite Catechism” series has been performed in more than 410 cities in six countries.

Tickets are $30 for reserved seats, $25 for students, and may be purchased by calling 517.796.8600, or online at www.jccmi.edu/pottercenter.
