Sister’s Easter Catechism: Will My Bunny Go To Heaven? is the newest addition to the sinfully funny Late Nite Catechism series. Starring award-winning veteran actress Kimberly Richards as “Sister,” this “holy hilarious” one woman show answers the season’s time worn questions including “Why isn’t Easter on the same day every year like Christmas?” and unearths the origins of Easter Bunnies, Easter Eggs, Easter Baskets, Easter Bonnets, and, of course, those yummy Easter Peeps.
I had little idea of what to expect when I received an invitation to attend Sister’s Easter Catechism: Will My Bunny Go To Heaven? I’m not particularly religious and did not attend Catholic school. The great thing about this show is that none of those things are necessarily in order to enjoy it and to find it funny. The discussion is basic enough and she provides enough background in order for non-Catholics to follow along and find the show humorous. The way to tell prior Catholic school attendees from those who did not was pretty easy. Those who went to Catholic school were doubled over, laughing uncontrollably, red with guilt for finding such jokes funny and those who did not were were laughing with the ability to remain upright. Through the show, the house lights remain on. There is no hiding in the darkness and “sins” will not go unnoticed. The show is very interactive and is authentic to attending a class in that sense. Kimberly Richards is a sassy comedian who is quick on her feet and easily could handle the stand-up comedian and improvisational aspects of the show. She’s adorable and lovable while still being able to instill the ‘fear of God’ within you. She’s perfect for this role.
