Sister Strikes Again at Long Wharf

NONIE NEWTON-BREEN
Sister returns to Long Wharf Theatre in a new show, Sister Strikes Again!: Late Nite Catechism 2, by Maripat Donovan, produced by Entertainment Events.

The show will run from July 13 through Aug. 12 on Stage II. The performance schedule is Wednesdays through Sundays at 8 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 3 pm. Tickets are $30.

Just when you thought it was safe to go into the classroom, Sister is back with none-stop laughs. With the blessings of the archdiocese, Sister has assembled banners, filmstrips, mimeographed handouts, historical facts, and hysterical insights as she conducts her class in an overview of Heaven and Hell, comparing them to a catholic version of Chutes and Ladders. Sister also offers her personal list of sins for the new millennium. (In case you were wondering, tattoos, body-piercings, and botox injections are high on her list.) With all the wit, wisdom, and wackiness of the original, Sister Strikes Again! is bound to bring back former students and make millions of new converts.

Nonie Newton-Breen, the star of Long Wharf Theatre’s previous runs of Late Nite Catechism, will reprise her performance as Sister. Newton-Breen got her start in show business performing at Second City in Chicago. Her long career includes work on stage and television, in addition to an Emmy Award for her writing and performing on the PBS special “Oh, Art!” She performs five shows in the successful Late Nite Catechism franchise, having recently debuted Sister’s Easter Catechism: Will My Bunny Go To Heaven? in Detroit earlier this year.

This is Newton-Breen’s fourth appearance as Sister at Long Wharf Theatre. For more information, or to purchase tickets, go to http://www.longwharf.org/ or call 203-787-4282.
