Nuns may get their due in Off-Broadway and Chicago's Late Nite Catechism, and around the country in Nunsense, but their students will have a spotlight of their own in Catholic School Girls Rule, Colleen Werthmann's solo at Off-Off-Broadway's Performance Space 122. The one-woman show began Jan. 9 and was scheduled to close Jan. 19 but has now been extended through Feb. 1.

A romp through "the agony and the ecstasy of high school and growing up Catholic," the show revisits Werthmann's formative years at an all-girls' parochial high school in the Midwest. She bills the piece as "a satire, a documentary and a psycho-rhumba all at once," featuring "90 percent verbatim dialogue."

The actress has performed her monologues at Off-Off-Broadway's Cucaracha, Luna Lounge, Surf Reality and HERE. A founding member of the avant-garde group Elevator Repair Service, Werthmann has worked with Richard Foreman, Robert Wilson and Anne Bogart.

For tickets ($12) and information on Catholic School Girls Rule, call P.S. 122 (on First Ave) at (212) 477-5288.
