Dubbed a "sweet, funny, sometimes touching look at growing up in parochial school in New York in the '60s", Casey Kurtti's Catholic School Girls opens this Thursday, March 22, and runs through April 1.
Staring four actresses who play school girls from first through eighth grade, and the nuns who teach them, the play is a coming-of-age tale set in an interesting time in our history, in which faith plays an important part, as do relationships with authority figures, friends, boys, and family, self-image and self-doubt, developing sexuality and ambitions for a better, grown-up life. In other words, it's about pretty much all of us, not just Catholics, not just girls, and not just those who can remember the 60s. The Lowcountry Weekly has a more in-depth profile that you can read here. Thursday nights are pay-what-you can (with a $5 minimum) and if you can make it this Friday night, they'll have a special pre-show reception starting at 6:30 p.m. with some light snacks and beverages.- March 22nd - 24th at 8 p.m.- March 25th at 3 p.m.
- March 29th - March 31st at 8 p.m.
- April 1 at 3 p.m.
So bring your friends, family and loved ones, Tivo March Madness, and come hang out with the cool kids in "Catholic School Girls"!
The play is at ArtWorks at 2127 Boundary Street.
