Theater After Hours

Nuns Thrive on ‘Drinking Habits’

The State Street Theater Company will present Tom Smith’s DRINKING HABITS, a zany comedy with good intentions gone bad, on April 5 and 6 at 7 pm with a matinee performance on April 7 at 2 pm.

Accusations, mistaken identities, and romances run wild in this traditional, laugh-out-loud farce. Two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent’s doors open, but Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancees, are hot on their trail. They go undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.

General admission seating is $ 12.50 in advance or $15 at the door. Sunday matinee Senior Discount admission is $12.50. Theatre After Hours tickets are $10. Tickets are available from February 5 to April 5 at the Chamber of Commerce or online at https://sstc_drinkinghabits.eventbrite.com.

State Street Theater is located at 1 North State Street, New Ulm. For more information, call 507-359-9990, email statestreettheater@gmail.com or visit statestreetnewulm.org.

Join us for THEATRE AFTER HOURS, an opening night afterglow, on Friday evening April 5 at 9 pm at MonaLena, 225 North Minnesota Street for themed pairings of aperitifs, local wines, and hors d’oeuvres. This is an age 21 and over event.
