With sales hopping, City Theatre has added six additional performances of Sister’s Easter Catechism: Will My Bunny Go to Heaven featuring audience favorite Kimberly Richards as the unforgettable Sister.
This Pittsburgh premiere City Event is on stage now and running through March 20, in the Lester Hamburg Studio.
Added performances are Wednesday, March 16 at 1:00 p.m., Thursday, March 17 at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, March 19 at 2:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., and Sunday, March 20 at 2:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Celebrate the Easter season with Sister as she answers the time-worn questions of the season like “Why isn’t Easter the same day every year like Christmas?” and “Will My Bunny Go To Heaven?” Part pageant, and wHOLY hysterical, this latest of the sinfully funny Late Nite Catechism series unearths the origins of Easter… bunnies, eggs, bonnets, baskets, and, of course, those yummy Peeps. Classroom participation is a must, so don’t forget to wear your Easter bonnet and join Sister for this seasonal treat!
Since 2005, the Late Nite Catechism series has entertained audiences in Pittsburgh with its hilarious and educational take on the Catholic faith. In that time, Ms. Richards has collected nearly $369,000 for Catholic motherhouses through post-show donations and by punishing wayward audience members, whose venial sins include arriving late, chewing gum, and wearing low-cut blouses.
