Event Description:

Join the State Street Theater Company cast of Tom Smith’s DRINKING HABITS, a zany comedy with good intentions gone bad.

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.

Open auditions will be held from 7 pm to 9 pm on Monday, January 7 and Thursday, January 10. And again on Saturday, January 12 from 1 pm to 3 pm. Those interested in auditioning are welcome to contact the theater in case they cannot make these times, but are interested in being considered for casting. Eight roles (5 Female, 3 Male) are open.

No monologues. No experience needed. First-time actors are warmly welcome. Auditions will be a cold read from the script. Rehearsals will begin as soon as the play is cast. The rehearsal schedule will be determined on cast availability.

Performances will be held April 5-7, 2019 under the direction of Wendy Tuttle. For more information please email or call 507-359-9990. Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. The production is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
