Late Night Catechism 2: Sister Strikes Back {Norwell} - February 23rd and 24th

Sister is BACK, and it’s up to her to save the souls of those assembled – aka the audience! Beginning with an overview of heaven and hell as a Catholic version of Chutes and Ladders and moving onto her proclamation of new sins for the new millennium, Sister is never hesitant to tell us where we’ve gone wrong. (Needless to say, excessive tattooing and piercing are right up there with pornographic websites and dining at Hooters.) And never doubt that Sister can provide a list of every celebrity currently sharing digs with the devil. Find the details HERE.

Evita {Norwell} - March 15th through 31st

The Tony Award® winner for best musical, Evita is the smash pop opera that follows Eva’s passionate rise to power from the streets of her youth in a rural province outside Buenos Aires, to show business stardom, to becoming the most powerful female political figure in Argentina—the wife of the president Juan Perón. Evita features classic songs from lyricist Tim Rice and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber including “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina”, “Oh What a Circus”, “Buenos Aires”, and “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”. Revered as a saint, cursed as a devil, Eva Perón’s dramatic, meteoric rise from poverty to prosperity is a groundbreaking and heart-wrenching depiction of populism, politics, and celebrity.
