'Late Night Catechism'

"Late Night Catechism" is coming to the Canton Palace Theatre 7:30 p.m., Jan. 27. "Late Nite Catechism" is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back to their childhood. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of "students" (the audience). During 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. These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school, with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm.
