Church Basement Ladies: A Second Helping

When: Wednesdays, Thursdays, 1 & 8 p.m., Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 1:30 & 7 p.m. Continues through Aug. 28 2011

The appetite for the original Church Basement Ladies musical was so great in 2010 that Beef & Boards put its sequel, A Second Helping, on the menu for its current season. Vivian, Mavis, Karin and Beverly (no longer going by her middle name, Signe) return to the stage, along with Pastor Gunderson, to serve up more laughs. The year is 1969 and change is all around – even for the ladies in the basement of their rural Minnesota Lutheran church. This time they’ll face high school students, a Luther League Banquet and even a Vikings’ Super Bowl Sunday. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young mom-to-be, these women find strength in each other as they deal with the joys and upheavals from below the “House of God!” Beef & Boards welcomes back the entire original cast from last summer’s smash hit, including Licia Watson as Vivian, Karen Pappas as Mavis, Katherine Proctor as Karin and Lisa Bark as Beverly, with Eddie Curry as Pastor Gunderson.

Price: $36-$59 plus applicable fees.
