Maripat Donovan, the creator and star of the wildly successful "Late Nite Catechism" series, which has been touring the country for the last 20 years, is stepping out of her habit and into a brand new interactive comedy "Ask Mrs. Honey B., Certified Life Coach." A run of 10 shows will be staged through March 23 at Mount Baker Theatre's Walton Studio Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St.
Inspired by her hero, Vince Lombardi, Mrs. Honey Buczkowski is a no-nonsense disciplinarian and owner and operator of her own life-coaching school. Whether the issue of relationships, parenting, in-laws, sexting or dealing with adult children who boomerang back home, Mrs. Honey B. will take you back to a time when traditional values were the norm.
The script contains mature content.
Tickets are $29 general, $14.50 students, with discounts for groups.
