Bagley Community Theater presents ‘Church Basement Ladies’ December 2-5


BAGLEY – The Bagley Community Theater will host its production of “Church Basement Ladies” at the Bagley High School Theater from December 2-5.

Shows take place on the following dates:

  • 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 2
  • 7 p.m. on Friday, December 3rd.
  • 7 p.m. on Saturday, December 4th.
  • 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 5th.

The musical comedy tells the story of women in the Church and their intergenerational relationships, which is both humorous and heartfelt, according to a press release. Production first opened in Plymouth in 2005 and ran for nearly 10 years, then spun off into several other plays with the same characters.

Production follows a group of women who run a church kitchen and prepare meals for Christmas, funerals, fundraisers, and weddings. Pastor Gunderson walks in and out of the kitchen, checks the preparations, confides in his friends and prepares a laudation while he sips a cup of coffee, the message says.

The film is directed by Marilyn Hood and starring Carol Nelson, Karen Stish, Jill Bakken, Abby Pearson and Josh Gunderson. Andrea Neeland accompanies the show and leads the band with Janey Merschman on synthesizer, Josh Gunderson on trumpet, Ben Nelson on saxophone, Sloan Merschman on clarinet and Andy Anderson and Elizabeth Paavola on drums.

Charity Pearson controls the sound and Darcie Kaiser operates the lightboard. With the help of several volunteers, Andrew Agnes directed the construction of the set.

Tickets are $ 10 each and go on sale at the box office.
