Nuns Thrive on ‘Drinking Habits’

This Event Occurred in the Past.

LocationState Street Theater located at 1 North Minnesota Street in New Ulm

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.

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.

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, Hy-vee, or online at


State Street Theater Company’s production of DRINKING HABITS 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 and by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
