Church Basement Ladies: Rise Up Old Men - Presented by the Performing Arts Association
Thursday, March 14, 2019
Rise Up O’ Men is the sixth installment in the highly successful production of the musical comedy Church Basement Ladies series. All of the shows are based on the books by author and humorists Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson including their bestseller Growing Up Lutheran.
“Rise Up O’ Men” gives the gents a chance to shine in the latest installment of the Church Basement Ladies musical comedy series. As the church prepares for participation in the town’s 1964 Centennial Celebration, we get to see their coming and goings from the eyes of the menfolk, who have their own problems to solve.
Karin’s husband Elroy, farmer Carl and Great War vet Arlo are joined in brotherhood by series staple Pastor E.L. Gunderson. Their camaraderie unites them as they deal with furnace salesmen, looming retirement, rival Protestant denominations, the Pastor’s bad jokes, and Arlene’s even-worse cooking.
