Central Square presents Church Basement Ladies 2
They're serving it up again in the church basement kitchen. Central Square in Glenwood will sponsor a performance of the musical comedy, Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping! on Sunday, February 13 at 2 p.m. at the historic Central Square auditorium in Glenwood.
The play has been called the "Steel Magnolias of the prairie" as the church ladies deal with life, death and new adventures in the world and their lives. The Church Basement Ladies musical theater series was inspired by the books of Janet Letnes Martin and Suzann Nelson, creators of the best-selling book, Growing Up Lutheran.
This time around, it 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.
Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping! takes attendees from serving the high school students at the Luther Leauge banquet to a church sponsored missionary night and the rise and fall of a Vikings' Super Bowl Sunday.
From the elderly matriarch to the young mom-to-be, these women find strength in each other as they deal with the joys and upheavals from below the "house of God."
Reserved seating is available by calling the Central Square box office at 1-866-497-0400.
