“Drinking Habits”, by Tom Smith.
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.
September 7 – 30
Selling Real Estate can be hilarious!!
Many Hats Theatre Company continues the Tenth Anniversary Season celebrations with the hilarious Canadian comedy Real Estate by Allana Harkin.
What does a mystery novelist do when he can’t write mysteries? Joel Hopper has a bad case of writer’s block and to boot has to deal with the sale of his family home, his estranged wife and her smarmy new lover.
Enter Emma-an incredibly determined realtor-who decides that Joel is as much of a “fixer-upper” as the house he lives in. With the addition of Joel’s soon-to-be-ex looking to get divorce papers signed and her “man purse”-toting beauty entrepreneur boyfriend in tow, Emma focuses all her considerable energy into developing the curb appeal of the house-as well as its inhabitant
Allana Harkin is a writer and performer with the acclaimed sketch troupe “The Atomic Fireballs” who have performed in Canada and the United States, and were nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award. She is writer and producer of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and a full length musical The Review. She is also an accomplished actor who works in both theatre and television and has an MFA from York University. She resides in Toronto where she balances her creative life with the domestic bliss of home renovations and baby diapers.
Real Estate opens September 7 and runs until September 30. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00PM with a Sunday Matinee at 2:00PM. All performances are on the Cannery Stage in the Cannery Trade Centre, 1475 Fairview Road, Penticton.
Again we’re having TWO gala opening nights! First, on September 7 there will be our traditional opening wine and cheese reception immediately following the performance featuring wines from our official winery sponsor Play Estate Winery.
THEN on Friday September 8 there will be a reception for opening night number two featuring the most excellent craft brews of The Cannery Brewing Company, and there will be door prizes furnished by Andre Martin of our official print sponsor, Minuteman Press.

It’s a time of passion and confusion. Virtue is barely holding down its petticoats. People are bursting their corsets with unbridled desire. It’s 1885, and the typewriter and the suffrage movement are sending things topsy-turvy. In the midst of it all, five ambitious New Women and one Newish Man struggle to find their way. Miss Mary Barfoot runs a school for secretaries with her young lover, Miss Rhoda Nunn. But when the Misses Madden – spinsters Virginia and Alice and beautiful young Monica – arrive, along with the attractive Dr. Everard Barfoot, things can never be the same.
Don’t miss the hilarious sequel to Boeing Boeing, “DON”T DRESS FOR DINNER” which runs in Osoyoos Jan 27-28 and in Oliver February 3-4.
This boulevard comedy was a smash hit in Paris, where it played for over two years, and in London, where it ran for six years at the Apollo and Duchess Theatres. It has since played in theatres all over the USA and the English speaking world
Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi.
It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well…. suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s.
Finally we round out the season with “SINCE YOU LEFT US” by Canada’s own Susinn McFarlen. This will also be SOAP’s entry into the 2017 OZone Festival. Shows will be April 28 & 29 in Osoyoos and May 5 & 6 in Oliver.
Tickets are $25 and $15 for students BUT we are also offering a discounted season pass for our theatre loving patrons.
Season tickets are $67.50 and $39 for students for all the shows!!
