Strauss Theatre Center presents "Church Basement Ladies," a dinner theatre celebrating the church basement kitchen and the women who work there. It features four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize the food and the problems of a rural Minnesota church. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be, the book and music give us a touching, funny look at their lives as 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 disasters, share and debate recipes, and keep the Pastor on due course while thoroughly enjoying (and tolerating) each other. Funny and down to earth, audiences will recognize these ladies as they begin to see the Church year unfold from below the House of God.
Showtimes are October 13, 14, 20, and 21. Each ticket includes drinks, three course meal, and the show.
