Near: ‘Mystery of the Magi’s Gold’ on stage through Sunday

Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold will run through Dec. 27 at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 E. Second St. Show times are 8 p.m. tonight, 2 and 8 p.m. tomorrow, and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Described as ‘CSI meets Bethlehem,’ Sister’s Christmas Catechism stars Patti Hannon as the cranky but lovable nun ‘Sister,’ who has now taken on the mystery that has intrigued historians throughout the ages: whatever happened to the Magi’s gold?

The show is a sinfully funny alternative to traditional holiday fare.

Tickets, $38, are available online at or by calling (480) 994-ARTS (2787).
