catechismJust in time to get Kansas Citians of all religious leanings into the holiday spirit, Starlight Indoors welcomes Sister’s Christmas Catechism to its heated, indoor Cohen Community Stage House.

What’s in store for Starlight audiences? Think “CSI: Bethlehem”!

In this holiday mystery extravaganza, Sister takes on the mystery that has long intrigued historians: What ever happened to the Magi’s gold? Of course, we can all assume Mary used the frankincense and myrrh as a sort of potpourri – they were in a barn after all! – but the whereabouts of that gold is another story.

This one-woman show features the very talented actress Mary Zentmyer, who was first cast as Sister in Chicago 20 years ago. Zentmyer delighted Starlight audiences (and set them straight!) last January when she played Sister in a three-week run of Late Nite Catechism at Starlight Indoors.
Now Sister is back to tell the story of the Nativity as only she can. Employing her own scientific tools, Sister will be assisted by the Starlight STARS of Tomorrow (Starlight’s performance troupe of middle and high school students) and willing audience members in creating a living nativity unlike any you’ve seen before. With gifts galore and bundles of laughs, this show is sure to become the newest addition to Kansas Citians’ holiday traditions.

Audience members at Sister’s Christmas Cathechism will be sitting comfortably in Starlight’s heated 12,000-square-foot Cohen Community Stage House; 300 seats are available for each performance.
