INDIANAPOLIS – Those hilarious Church Basement Ladies have cooked up an all-new show, and it’s being served along with the buffet this summer at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. A Mighty Fortress is Our Basement, the fourth and funniest installment yet of this popular series, is now on stage through Aug. 17.
No one can dish out love, life and a casserole like the Church Basement Ladies. It’s 1960 and the gals are once again required to face the challenges of change head-on. Beverly is turning 15 and gets her first pair of high heels for Confirmation; Karin is finally learning how to drive; Mrs. Snustad and Mrs. Gilmerson plan a food booth at the county fair to raise money, and the pastor announces his impending nuptials.
Against the shifting tide, these pillars of the church stand strong in their faith and in their friendships with more crazy antics, more great new songs and more lessons reluctantly learned.
Returning to reprise their roles are Licia Watson as Vivian Snustad, Karen Pappas as the always entertaining Mavis Gilmerson, Hillary Smith as Beverly Engelson and Eddie Curry as Pastor Gunderson. Carrie SaLoutos, fresh off the National Tour of A Mighty Fortress is Our Basement, joins the cast in the role of Beverly’s mother, Karin Engelson.
A Mighty Fortress is Our Basement is on stage for 52 performances through Aug. 17 in the intimate space of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets range from $38.50 to $63.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, prepared in-house for each performance, and select beverages.
