Church Basement Ladies

Musical – September 17, 18, 20 and 24, 25, 27  (Please notice we are not on stage during NE football Saturdays)

Church Basement Ladies is a musical written by Jim Stowell and Jessica Zuehlke with music and lyrics by Drew Jansen.

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 main kitchen cooks and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation by preparing and serving the food. Like any great kitchen, problems are solved here as well. We see the four women handle a Lutefisk Dinner, a funeral, an Easter Fund Raiser, and, of course, a wedding. They stave off potential disasters, have fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on due course. This musical comedy based on recipes, food, and change in the church is funny, heartwarming, and  down to earth. It will bring back memories of many people you know from churches everywhere.
