By Chris Hewitt

Fans of St. Paul-based actress Sally Wingert have more dates to mark on their calendars now that Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company has announced its 2015-16 season.

Wingert will appear in Charles Busch's hilarious "The Tale of the Allergist's Wife" as the title character, a woman who has a breakdown at a Disney Store.

The season also features the area premiere of the comedy "Bad Jews," in which a family squabbles over an heirloom, a theatrical adaptation of Nathan Englander's story, "The Twenty-Seventh Man" (also a regional premiere), the holiday show "The Chanukah Guest" and a season-opening solo performance by Miriam Schwartz in "Becoming Dr. Ruth."

Performances are at Highland Park Community Center in St. Paul. For season tickets, call 651-647-4315 or visit
