Drinking Habits 2 
Caught In The Act
by Tom Smith
drinking habits2 logo[57].jpg

The Sisters of Perpetual Sewing miss the excitement of the old days when they were saving convents and reuniting long-lost families.  So when they learn that the orphanage where Paul and Kate grew up is in peril, they can't wait to come to the rescue!

Everyone pitches in to mount a play to raise money, but it's no easy feat when Kate's expecting any day, Sally's hiding from stage-fright-stricken Paul after another flight from the alter, Mother Superior's acting is unexpectedly narcoleptic, and the sisters' award-winning wine keeps getting switched with the grape juice.

The merry mix-ups multiply in this warm and winsome sequel to Drinking Habits.

VV-148 St Jacques 24x26_2_.jpg

At age 12, Valentin began sewing sequins at his father's atelier and was designing his own sequin flags by the age of 20.  Now, as a mid-career artist, his colorful and detailed tableaus make him one of the most important artists of his generation.  Executed with precision like his father, Valentin's tapestries portray a modernist sensibility while remaining true to his folk-art roots.

poster final 21.jpg

The Importance of Being Earnest is widely regarded as one of the great works of modern literature, and Oscar Wilde an inaugurator and master of Modernism.  This brilliantly funny farce about mistaken identities, secret engagements and lover’s entanglements is filled with Wilde’s mischievous wit and subversive insights about the English upper class, the vanity of high society and truth itself.  The play is directed by Margot Hasha and features Austin Broussard, Colin Smith, Sandra Broussard, Kylie Latolais, Ryan Kolb, Christy Leichty, Edward Demahy and Joe Riehl.
