DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
CARLENE (Kristin Chenoweth, pictured) is finding herself in the unfamiliar position of having to audition for the church musical. Cricket is also going for the lead, even though, as Carlene puts it, it’s her god- given right and Cricket isn’t ‘‘ physically right’’ to play the Holy Spirit. It’s been years since Carlene was in the Exodus Operetta and people are still talking about her burning bush, apparently. Sharon’s the only one not involved, because she’s flat out with her burgeoning ready meal empire Losing It With Jesus, which she’s about to sell on TV.
