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.
