*Our fall play will be Drinking Habits written by Tom Smith*
*Performance Dates:* November 9th, 10th, 11th, 16th, and 17th, 2018
*Description:* 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.

*Our spring musical will be Sweeney Todd with book by Hugh Wheeler, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim*
*Performance Dates: *April 12th, 13th, 14th, 18th, 19th, and 20th, 2019
*Description:* An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck
sharply shifts when Todd?s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun!
