Sister's Summer School Catechism: God Never Takes a Vacation
Highlights from Late Night Catechism
In the latest incarnation of the long-running comedy series Late Nite Catechism, "Sister," played by the hilariously prickly Kimberly Richards, transforms the stage into a summer school classroom. Against her will and spoiling her summertime motherhouse plans, the good sister must begrudgingly teach the dos and don'ts (mostly the don'ts) of navigating the modern world. In this interactive experience, the audience plays Sister's students, and anyone attending does so at risk of her hilarious but decidedly pointed wit, particularly if they chew gum, dare to whisper to their neighbor, or knowingly start a cootie epidemic. Attentive audience members will find themselves rewarded with soul-protecting prizes, such as glow-in-the-dark rosaries, but naughty students might find themselves confined to a corner onstage.
Like many of Fox's lavish movie palaces, the Meyer opened in the 1930s, only to see its Spanish Atmospheric touches fade over the years as it became a modern triplex cinema. But once it was converted to its current incarnation as a live performing arts venue, the staff worked hard to restore its opulence, from the midnight-blue sky with twinkling stars to columns decorated with gold leaves. The theater's crown jewel, however, is the Mighty Wurlitzer organ, which was refurbished using the original 1927 blueprint. With its pipes ranging from the size of a pencil to 16 feet, the instrument boasts a range of tones and cinematic sound effects, such as horse hooves, chattering teeth, and David O. Russell roaring at his actors.
