Sister’s Catechism: ‘Terrifying Tales’ at the Shubert

October 2, 2018 GMT

Raise your hand and Sister may call on you. And laughs just may ensue.

There’s a whole series of Entertainment Events interactive stage shows that began with “Sister’s Late Nite Catechism”: the sequel “Sister Strikes Again,” “Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold” and even “Sister’s Easter Catechism: Will My Bunny Go to Heaven?”

Now we cover another holiday, Halloween, in “Sister’s Back to School Catechism: The Holy Ghost and Other Terrifying Tales” Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Shubert Theatre in New Haven.

Denise Fennell will be portraying Sister in this one, preparing her classroom for another long year of catechism. Catholics and non-Catholics tend to enjoy these shows, and this one covers the church’s take on all the familiar Halloween tales of ghosts and goblins. It also may include instruction on how to build a Catholic-appropriate Halloween costume.

Shubert Theatre, 247 College St., New Haven. Saturday, Oct. 13, 8 p.m. $55-$35. 203-562-5666. Shubert.com
