Luck o' the Irish
Sassy Sister is back onstage at Stages to bless Houston audiences
Class is back in session at Stages, where Denise Fennell is donning the habit once more to play Sister, everyone's favorite nun.
Sister's Irish Catechism: Saints, Snakes, and Green Milkshakes! leads the audience in a brand-new catechism class, digging deep into Irish traditions and saintly lore to celebrate the faithful — and the party animals, too.
Be prepared for plenty of audience participation at this show, which has been selling out every weekend so far and only runs through March 17.
To help get you in the mood to participate, you can grab a drink from the Gordy Bar before curtain and during intermission and bring it into the theater with you!
Fennell and co-playwright Maripat Donovan have been blessing Houston with Sister's wisdom for years, and you won't want to miss this latest lucky production.
Performance times are Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 pm, Friday and Saturday at 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:30 pm. The show runs approximately two hours, including a fifteen-minute intermission.
One of Sister's goals this year is to enter the St. Patrick's Day Parade, and by the luck of the Irish she's actually doing it on March 16. Sister and other members of the Stage crew are walking in the Houston Saint Patrick's Day Parade, and there's even a petition floating around to make Sister the grand marshal.
Sister's Irish Catechism is onstage now through March 17 only, so be sure to get your tickets early. Sister doesn't tolerate tardiness!
