There are big laughs, from the church basement to the barnyard, at Theatre L’Homme Dieu this week!
Johnny Rocket and Mrs. Rocket had the pleasure of attending the opening night for “The Church Basement Ladies: You Smell Barn” Tuesday night at Theatre L’Homme Dieu.
The beloved Church Basement Ladies are back and getting busy with life outside the kitchen in “Church Basement Ladies: You Smell Barn,” the seventh installment in the popular “Church Basement Ladies” series. This show finally answers the burning question: What do Church Basement Ladies do when they’re not in the basement?
The answer: Crazy antics, loads of fresh laughs, and spanking new original songs.
“You Smell Barn”celebrates rural life in the 1950’s. Even if you didn’t grow up in rural Minnesota, This show will have you laughing, clapping, tapping your toes and…you might even get a little misty.
Follow the church basement ladies as they try to find a new venue for the Midsummer Festival, as a lightning strike caused a fire that burned down the barn where the festival is usually held. Along the way you will be introduced to a number of interesting characters, including the Irish Catholic (uff-da) handyman, the local gossip and the friendly mailman.
Produced by Curt Wollan, Troupe America, Inc., “You Smell Barn” is written by Greta Grosch, with music by Dennis Curley; lyrics by Greta Grosch and Dennis Curley; and inspired by the book Growing Up Rural: You Smell Barn by Janet Letnes Martin and Suzann Nelson.
There are a limited number of tickets available for the show. Contact Theatre L’Homme Dieu for ticket information.
