Church Basement Ladies Bring Christmas Cheer to SDCA

And out of the basement shall come a Church Basement program of good tidings, great humor and joy to the Southern Door Community Auditorium on Dec. 16, 2 pm. Troupe America, Inc., the producer of the nationally acclaimed musical comedy Church Basement Ladies and Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping opens the holiday season with a new musical comedy— Away in the Basement: A Church Basement Ladies Christmas.

Away in the Basement takes audiences to 1959 and the day of the Sunday School Christmas Program. In the midst of holiday preparations and sprinklings of love in the air, the ladies in their witty, down-to-earth style are creating their own memories from Christmases past and present. Content to do things the way they have always been done, and pondering new ideas, the reality of everyday life hits home as they plan the Sunday School Christmas Program.

As the children rehearse in the sanctuary, the ladies put the final touches on the nativity pieces, mend old bathrobe costumes and discuss the politics of who’s going to play the various roles. Little do the ladies know what surprises are in store. Known for their hilarious antics and subtle charm, they are once again called upon to step in and save the day.

Tickets are $25 for adults, and $15 for seniors and children. Groups of ten or more receive a 10 percent discount.
