July 27, 2017 - September 10, 2017: Church Basement Ladies

The church basement kitchen throughout much of America is often the heart and soul of any church. In CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES we meet the pastor, three cooks and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation. As in any kitchen, problems arise. We watch as the four women handle a Lutefisk Dinner, a funeral, an Easter Fund Raiser, and, of course, a wedding. They stave off potential disasters, have loads of fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on a steady course. This musical comedy, which has charmed audiences all over the nation, is funny, heart-warming, and down to earth. It will bring back memories of many people you know and love.

Seven shows weekly Wednesday through Sunday
