‘Sister’ returns with a Christmas mystery

Denise Fennell as Sister.

Charlotte Players presents “Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold,” coming to Port Charlotte tomorrow night. This time, Denise Fennell dons the habit as Sister, everyone’s favorite nun, in a hilarious holiday production. In the one-woman play, Sister seeks to solve the mystery of the gold presented to the Christ child.

“We know where the frankincense ended up and what was done with the myrrh,” she says. “ But the mystery remains: who took the gold?”

Sister plunges into a “CSI: Bethlehem” forensic investigation and turns her mission into an educational experience, with lots of laughs along the way.

“Over the years, audiences of all religions and ideologies have enjoyed Fennell’s humorous take on the Roman Catholic Church,” notes the BroadwayWorld website, “which is neither mean-spirited nor satire, but developed out of deep affection. It’s not rare to see a priest, nun or church official in attendance at one of her performances.”

Don’t miss Sister’s one-night-only show at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 6, at the William H. Wakeman III Cultural Center Theater, 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte. Preferred seating is $40, and regular adult seating is $35. For tickets, visit www.charlotteplayers.org or call the Players office at 941-255-1022.
