CCP’s “Church Basement Ladies”

Nov 7th, 8th, & 9th, 2024 @ 7:30pm

Nov 9th, 2024 @ 1pm

Director & Music Direction by Natalie Bessette

Produced by Emily Roberts-Whitener

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 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, we see them handle a record-breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter fundraiser, and a steaming hot July wedding. 

They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the Pastor on course while thoroughly enjoying, (and tolerating) each other as the true "steel magnolias" of the church. 

Funny and down to earth, audiences will recognize these ladies as they witness the church year unfold from below the house of God.

There are several Church Basement Ladies shows in the series to choose from! Based on the popular books, including the best seller Growing Up Lutheran, by Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson, Church Basement Ladies appeal is universal. The series of shows are funny, touching and down to earth. Plus each is full of songs and hilarious antics. Audiences will “Laugh ‘til their side-dish hurts!” Celebrate the church basement kitchen and the women who work there.
