Location: Meyer Theatre - Green Bay, WI
Event Description: Performances March 26th and 27th - 2 pm and 7 pm
The fourth installment of the Church Basement ladies series of Musical Comedies, A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR BASEMENT, will be presented March 26 & 27, 2014 at the Meyer Theatre.
In the latest installment, these “bulwarks never failing” are at it again. The year is 1960 and a reformation is underway. With a new crop of Confirmands, Beverly, the youngest of the bunch, dons her first pair of high heels for her confirmation ceremony. Mrs. Snustad, the matriarch of the kitchen, wins top honors at the County Fair for her “Grand Champion” pickles. Mavis, the able bodied farm wife, must find a way to deal with the new “Super Highway” which cuts through her farm. Karin, the real homemaker of the kitchen, finds new freedom behind the wheel of her husband’s pickup truck and must reconcile a new world of change for her daughter, Beverly. Pastor, who has always found strength and solace in the church basement, has found new love and announces
his impending nuptials. The Church Basement Ladies are once again required to face change head on. Against the changing tide, these pillars of the church stand strong in their faith and in their friendships with more crazy antics, more great new songs and more lessons reluctantly learned.
Audiences from coast to coast have fallen in love with these residents of the church basement, and all agree that each new installment gets better. What’s more, you do not have to have seen past installments in order to know what’s going on. As the St. Paul Pioneer Press says – “The genius in the writing of Church Basement Ladies is that familiarity with previous incarnations is optional.”
