And the Pastor, too, of course! We’re happy to welcome them back for rehearsal this week as they prepare for the April 21st opening of A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR BASEMENT. Directed by Curt Wollan who first brought the series to life on stage at Minnesota’s Plymouth Playhouse in 2005 and has directed many productions, this show is a tribute to all the real Church Basement Ladies of the Midwest.
In this installment, the year is 1960 and a reformation is underway. Beverly gets her first pair of high heels for confirmation. Mrs. Snustad wins top honors at the County Fair for her Grand Champion pickles. Mavis must find a way to deal with the new Super Highway that cuts through her farm. Karin finds freedom behind the wheel of her husband’s pickup truck. And Pastor has found new love and announces his impending nuptials.
We are thrilled to welcome back Mary Ehlinger as Vivian and Joe Lehman as Pastor Gunderson. They are joined by Nancy Jane Nelson as Mavis, Brittany D. Parker as Karin, and Kaylee Verble as Beverly. Against the changing tide, these “bulwarks never failing” stand strong in their faith and in their friendships with more crazy antics, more great songs, and more lessons reluctantly learned.
Reservations can be made online here or with our friendly Box Office staff at 800-477-9505 from 10 – 6 Monday through Saturday and 10 – 4 on Sundays. Don’t miss this fun, we look forward to serving you!
