Church Basement Ladies
Church Basement Ladies, written by Jim Stowell and Jessica Zuehlke with music and lyrics by Drew Jansen.
Hold onto your oven mitts and stay out of the kitchen! You won’t want to miss this celebration of the church basement kitchen and the women who work there. Church Basement Ladies is a heartfelt, hilarious musical comedy, which features the lives of four distinct characters as they organize the food, stave off potential disasters, have fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on due course in a rural Minnesota church in 1965.
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, the true “steel magnolias” of the church, handle a record breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter Fund Raiser, and of course, a steaming hot July wedding. This musical comedy, based on recipes, food and change in the church is funny, heartwarming, down to earth and sure to have you laughing until your side-dish hurts!
