“Church Basement Ladies”
(the original musical):
Church Basement Ladies, a musical written by
Jim Stowell and Jessica Zuehlke with music and
lyrics by Drew Jansen has been playing to sellout
crowds for 29 months in Minneapolis.
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. The 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, heart warming, and
down to earth. It will bring back memories of many
people you know from churches everywhere..
