November 7 or 8, 2019
New Musical Comedy & lunch at Cracker Barrel
The Church Basement Ladies are back in a new musical comedy in “Hark! The Church Basement Ladies Sing” at the Ames Center in Burnsville with better sightlines and roomier seats. Join Laura and Gary Block on Thursday November 7th or Friday November 8th for a delicious lunch at Cracker Barrel in Lakeville and the Church Basement Ladies in the afternoon. We leave Little Falls at 8:30 a.m. from the northeast corner of the Wal-Mart parking lot. Our comfortable Andy’s Charter Service motor coach will also pick up in Royalton, Rice, St. Cloud or anywhere else on our route. Lunch is in Lakeville at the only Cracker Barrel in Minnesota. Enjoy a home-away-from-home in the restaurant and the old country store. This is real home-style food and shopping that’s reminiscent of America’s country heritage. Each person will receive a $15 gift card so you can order what you desire from the menu and if there’s any dollars remaining on your card after lunch, use it in the store following your meal. It’s a short drive to the Ames Center in Burnsville for “Hark! The Church Basement Ladies Sing”. This is the latest installment in the Church Basement Ladies musical series. It is December 1960, and members of this rural community have gathered around their reel-to-reel tape player to record a special Christmas greeting for one of their boys serving overseas. As the ladies serve up coffee and cookies, Pastor suffers from a case of stage fright, Mavis smuggles a piglet into the kitchen, a surprise visitor leaves Karin speechless, and the Widow Vivian Snustad gets caught in an embarrassing situation. Throughout it all, you are encouraged to sing along as Beverly Barsness bangs out Christmas carols on the old upright. So come “Fa La La” with the Church Basement Ladies as they deck their fellowship hall. Whether you’ve seen several versions or are new to the world of the basement, the 7th in the Church Basement Ladies series is a musical treat for all. Inspired by the best-seller “Growing Up Lutheran” and “Growing Up Rural”, this new musical comedy is written by Greta Grosch with music by Michael Pearce Donley. We are expecting a huge response, so sign up today. Combine a fabulous lunch at Cracker Barrel and a charming comedy “Hark! The Church Basement Ladies Sing” and you have the perfect day. These are the original Church Basement Ladies and not a touring group. It’s so fun to see the originals together again@! It’s a big helping of music, laughs, better sightlines and roomier seats. We will be returning to Little Falls around 6:00 p.m.
