Metaphors for laughter are often surprisingly violent, from "busting a gut" to "splitting your sides" to "tumbling down the jagged face of Joke Mountain." Break a funny bone with this GrouponLive deal to see Late Nite Catechism at Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts, located on the campus of Missouri State University. For $42, you get two tickets for front orchestra or front mezzanine seating on Friday, October 26, at 8 p.m. (up to an $85.50 value, including fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
In the latest incarnation of the long-running comedy series Late Nite Catechism, "Sister" transforms Juanita K. Hammons Hall into a classroom, where she teaches 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.
