‘Late Nite Catechism’ interactive comedy theatre set June 14

At Milton Theatre
June 8, 2018

“Late Nite Catechism,” written by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan, made its debut in 1993 and has since grossed over $100 million in box office receipts. It has been presented in more than 410 cities around the world, and has played six countries with over 3.5 million people in attendance. 

Call it Loretta Young meets Carol Burnett. This part catechism class, part stand-up routine is one of the longest-running shows in Chicago and U.S. theater history. And it’s coming to the historic Milton Theatre  at 8 p.m., Thursday, June 14.

The uproarious piece of theater takes audience members back - sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully - to the children they once were. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of “students” (the audience). Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor to authoritative drill sergeant. These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm.

Tickets are $35-$45. For more information, go to or call 302-684-3038.
