**Late Nite Catechism Update- Welcome Sister Barbara**
Sister Barbara is making her way to Walton Arts Center, bringing big laughs and glow in the dark rosaries!
Barbara Manning appeared on "House," working along side the amazing Hugh Laurie who declared her work as “Brilliant.” You can catch her in the AARP commercial for Medicare Supplement Insurance (look for the kayak). In 2013, she portrayed a doomed librarian in the Halloween episode of Criminal Minds. Barbara worked with director, Debbie Allen on “How To Get Away With Murder”, has films in several festivals and a Christian feature opening during the holidays. You can also catch Sister Barbara as the irreverent secretary to Beau Bridges in the poignant drama, San Patricios.
Previously scheduled, Sister Nonie has had a family emergency pull her from the stage, but not before sharing her thoughts on history, favorites and reasons to check out Late Nite Catechism.
Sisters are not slouchy. Sister Nonie has earned an Emmy for writing and performing “Oh, Art!” for PBS in Chicago. She has appeared in soaps, sit-coms and hidden camera shows. Television writing credits include: "Candid Camera," CBS’ "Say What," "Late Date" and "The Barkers." And for the last 20 years, Nonie has proudly toured the country in the one-woman show, Late Nite Catechism.
She happily dedicates this show to Sister Regina Therese, her fifth grade nun, who whacked her frequently - usually for a very good reason.

Top 7 reasons Why you should see Late nite catechism:
Well... because its fun and funny.
It appeals to people of all faiths. I don't make fun of religion- I have fun with it.
People truly enjoy themselves, they win prizes, they enjoy watching others “get in trouble.”
I am currently in my 20th year performing the part of Sister - the show is different every time because its half improvised so you never know what fun will take place.
The audience is the co-star and the trick for me is listening and letting others get a laugh.
We have 8 Off-Broadway versions of the original production. We are still going strong!
what else are you doing? Spit out that gum and call the box office.
Don't make me come to your house- because I will. See you next week!
