Church Basement Ladies
By Jim Stowell and Jessica Zuehlke
Directed by Barry Nyquist
Church Basement Ladies, a musical written by Jim Stowell and Jessica Zuehlke with music and lyrics by Drew Jansen played 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, th 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, heart warming, and down to earth. It will bring back memories of many peopple you know from churches everywhere. You don't have to be Lutheran or from Minnesota to fall in love with Church Basement Ladies. "This is most certainly true!"
