11-27-drinkinghabitsAccusations, mistaken identities, and romances will run wild in the Artesia Community Theatre’s upcoming performance of the traditional, laugh-out-loud farce “Drinking Habits.”

“Drinking Habits,” by Tom Smith, tells the story of two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing who have been secretly making wine to keep the content’s doors open. But Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancées, are hot on their trail.

The two 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.

The ACT is preparing to hold auditions for the production, which includes a cast of five females and three males. Auditions will be held at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4; 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6; and 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, at First Christian Church. Rehearsals will begin Jan. 3, 2017, and performances are slated for Feb. 17-19 at Cottonwood Wine and Brewing.
