"Church Basement Ladies' return to Jefferson City

Touring company to stop for one day, two shows

November 26th, 2010 in News

It's Christmastime and the church is getting ready for its holiday festivities.

"And out of the basement shall come a Church Basement program of good tidings, great humor and joy!" the news release reports as it announces the production of "a new musical comedy, "Away in the Basement: A Church Basement Ladies Christmas.'"

That show first was staged in the Plymouth, Minn., Playhouse, just northwest of Minneapolis. And a touring production comes to Jefferson City next week for two performances.

It's the third installment of what is growing to be a series of musicals, inspired by the bestseller, "Growing Up Lutheran," and other books by author/ humorists Janet Letnes Martin and Suzann Nelson.

"Away in the Basement: A Church Basement Ladies Christmas" will be performed Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Miller Performing Arts Center, 501 Madison St.

Tickets: $35 each, discount for 10 or more. On sale at the door, or call 573/681-9012.
