The Village Players of Hatboro announce the opening production of their 70th season, the zany comedy Drinking Habits written by Tom Smith.
Drinking Habits opens on Friday, October 7th, 2016 with an 8:00 p.m. curtain. Tickets are only $15. The show runs the next three weekends in October. There are also two Sunday matinees on October 9th and October 16th at 2:00 p.m.
Accusations, mistaken identities, and romances run wild in this traditional, laugh-out-loud farce. Two nuns (Sara Stepnowski and Kara McCormick) at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent’s doors open, but Sally (Colleen Mackle) and Paul (Tom Settefrati), reporters and former fiancées, are hot on their trail. They go undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun Sister Mary Catherine (Laura Berntsen), spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. The local priest (Paul McCarthy) and the Mother Superior (Caren Cronin) are worried the convent will next. They recruit the groundskeeper George (Bobby Harris) to be their spy. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.
Directing the production is Fran Carroll whose previous shows include In-Laws, Outlaws and Other People Who Should Be Shot, Incorruptible, and Drop Dead!
