Late Nite Catechism

January 26, 2019
Late Nite Catechism

Late Nite Catechism is,an uproarious piece of theater that 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, rewarding the "students" for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, 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.

Maripat Donovan, the creator of the Late Nite Catechism series and the original “Sister,” discovered Denise Fennell when she was appearing as Tina in the Off-Broadway production of Tony n’ Tina's Wedding. She trained Denise personally for the role. Denise is now a veteran of the Late Nite Catechism series and has played to rave reviews across the US and Canada.

She recently completed a run of Shear Madness at The Stages Repertory Theatre in Houston, TX and was singled out for her character work as Barbara Demarco. She has also appeared in the Off-Broadway company of Shear Madness in NYC. Denise is most recognized for her portrayal of “Sister” in the Late Nite Catechism series and in Jane Wagner's award-winning comedy The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe. As a producer, Denise co-created Totally Tubular Time Machine and Birdy's Bachelorette Party (NYC & Las Vegas) and her most recent project, Channeling The King, a touching, funny one-man show featuring Elvis Presley’s greatest hits.
