MOUNT CARROLL, Ill. — Timber Lake Playhouse, in Mount Carroll, Ill., will present 12 performances of ‘Til Death Do Us Part: Late Nite Catechism 3 Aug. 25-Sept. 4.
Call it Loretta Young meets Carol Burnett. This is part catechism class, part stand-up routine. It’s an interactive comedy, one of the longest-running shows in Chicago and U.S. theater history.
After teaching countless audiences all about the saints, venial sins, guilt, limbo and more, Sister is now offering hilarious lessons on the Sacraments of Marriage and Last Rites, including her own wacky version of The Newlywed Game. Classroom participation is a must with the country’s feistiest couples’ counselor.
Special guest actress Mary Zentmyer joins Timber Lake in the role of America’s favorite nun. Zentmyer has taught Catechisms off broadway in New York and for several years at the Ivanhoe Theatre in Chicago.
Tickets ($20) are available online at timberlakeplayhouse.org or by calling the box office at (815) 244-2035 between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily.
Timber Lake Playhouse is at 8215 Black Oak Road in Mount Carroll, Ill.
