‘Sister’s Christmas Catechism’ Coming to River Campus Dec. 11

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Nov. 28, 2011—“Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold” will bring a night of laughter and suspense to Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus Dec. 11.

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall.

“Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold” was written by Maripat Donovan, author of the hilarious “Late Nite Catechism,” with the help of Jane Morris and Marc Silvia.

The play follows Sister’s quest to answer the age-long question:  What happened to the Magi’s gold?  Her investigation of the situation is highly comical and will leave the audience laughing in their seats.  She uses her own scientific tools and the assistance of the local choir as well as some audience members to solve the mystery, creating a living nativity unlike any seen before.

“After last years’ presentation of the original ‘Late Nite Catechism,’ which received a rousing response from the Cape Girardeau audience, we had more requests to bring back ‘Sister’ than we have ever had for any other show,” said Bob Cerchio, assistant director at the River Campus. “When dozens upon dozens of people say, ‘Bring her back!’ – well, you bring her back.”
