The Church Basement Ladies is a musical comedy celebrating the church basement kitchen and the women who work there.
The story features four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize the food and solve the problems of a rural Minnesota church about to undergo changes in 1965.
From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be learning the proper order of things, the audience can see them handle a record-breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter fundraiser and of course, a steaming hot July wedding.
They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young and keep the pastor on due course while thoroughly enjoying each other. Funny and down to Earth, audiences will recognize these ladies as they witness the church year unfold from below the house of God.
Church Basement Ladies uses the renowned Scandinavian Lutheran humor writings of The Lutheran Ladies, Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson, authors of a host of humorous books, the most famous being Growing Up Lutheran.
The script is by Jessica Zuehlke and Jim Stowell with music and lyrics by Drew Jansen, who is also known for the popular long-running hit musical, How to Talk Minnesotan, The Musical.
