Productions are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

She also plays Sister Mary Amnesia, the country western singing nun who lost her memory. Mother Superior is played by Michon Chandler-Douglas, Karen's real life daughter and 1996 CHS alumni.

The band features all CHS folk: On the keyboards is Katie Lauder, an alumni of the music department, and her sister, senior Victoria Lauder playing the synthesizer. Bryan Akerly, class of 2010, is on the drums.
