Church Basement Ladies: The Last (Potluck) Supper
7:30, Wednesday, April 22
A celebration of the church basement kitchen and the women who work there, Church Basement Ladies is a musical comedy featuring four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize the food and solve the problems of a rural Minnesota church. In the latest installment, The Last (Potluck) Supper, the year is 1979 and past parishioners have gathered to share recipes. As the women work in the kitchen, shared memories burst into life through a series of flashbacks, and the ladies manage to serve up a rib-tickling panorama of the changes in the kitchen, without spilling a drop of coffee! Church Basement Ladies uses the renowned Scandinavian Lutheran humor writings by Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson who authored many humorous books. Their most famous book was Growing Up Lutheran. The script is by Jessica Zuehlke and Jim Stowell with music and lyrics by composer Drew Jansen, who gave us the music for the popular long-running hit musical, How To Talk Minnesotan, The Musical.
