Enjoy the world premier performance of the 5th and final chapter in the Church Basement Ladies series!
It is 1979, the day of the church’s Centennial Celebration, and past parishioners have gathered to share hotdish, bars, and stories from the last 100 years. As the women work in the kitchen, these shared memories burst into life through a series of flashbacks. Travel back to 1897 and meet Vivian’s grandmother, one of the founding members of the church; see Karin as a newlywed, cautiously navigating her way through the politics of the kitchen; and be there on that day, in 1944, when Mavis first barreled her way through the swinging door. As they time-jump thru a Century, these ladies manage to serve up a rib-tickling panorama of the changes in the kitchen, without spilling a drop of their egg coffee!
Meanwhile, the Centennial Celebration continues on the lawn. But the celebration is bittersweet. Times are tough in this small farm community, and tough decisions will have to be made. But, once again, your favorite church basement ladies handle it all with grace, hilarity, and some brand new musical numbers that are sure to get your toes tapping. Celebrate the Centennial as you take a tour thru history with the Church Basement Ladies.
