Join us as we embark on a journey to the Fireside Dinner Theater in Fort Atkinson to see the original Church Basement Ladies hilarious musical comedy. The church basement kitchen, throughout much of America, is often the heart and soul of any church. In CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES we meet the pastor, three cooks and one daughter, who run the kitchen and care for the congregation. As in any kitchen, problems arise. We watch as the four women handle a Lutefisk Dinner, a funeral, an Easter Fund Raiser, and a wedding. They stave off potential disasters, have loads of fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on a steady course.
