May 31, 2018 - July 15, 2018: Church Basement Ladies 2 – A Second Helping

Join us as our delightful “Steel Magnolias of the Prairie” deal with life, death, and new adventures, finding strength in each other from below the “House of God.” This time around, the year is 1969 and the world is changing. As folks protest the Vietnam War and women are demanding equal pay for equal work in their small rural Minnesota community, the ladies of the Lutheran church basement kitchen are dealing with changes of their own. With their heartwarming humor and hilarious antics, they take us from serving the high school students at the Luther League Banquet to a church sponsored Missionary Night and the rise and fall of a Viking’s Super Bowl Sunday.

Seven shows weekly Wednesday through Sunday
