CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES Starring - CINDY WILLIAMS "The original is back and this time, it stars Cindy Williams! CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES is the hilarious musical comedy that mixes the silliness of NUNSENSE with the homespun humor of PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION. It’s a celebration of the church basement kitchens everywhere and the wonderful, unsung women who work there. The script is spot on, the music is toe-tapping, the humor is delicious and the cast includes some of the funniest people we have ever assembled on our stage. Don’t miss the fun. This show will sell out!"

His strictly run household is turned upside down by generous and charming Maria, who even the Captain comes to love. When Austria is invaded by the Nazis and the Captain is called to serve, the family must escape over the Alps. Featuring the songs we all know and love: “The Hills Are Alive,” “Edelweiss,” Do-Re-Mi,” and “My Favorite Things.”"
