And out of the basement shall come a Church Basement program of good tidings, great humor and joy! The ladies are serving it up again. Troupe America, Inc., the Producer of the nationally acclaimed musical comedy Church Basement Ladies and Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping, opens the holiday season with a musical comedy Away in the Basement: A Church Basement Ladies Christmas at Mayo Civic Center on November 25, 2023, with two performances at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 pm.

Away in the Basement takes us back to 1959 and the day of the Sunday School Christmas Program.  In the midst of holiday preparations and sprinklings of love in the air, the ladies in their witty, down-to-earth style are creating their own memories from Christmases past and present. Content to do things the way they have always been done yet pondering new ideas, the reality of everyday life hits home as they plan the Sunday School Christmas Program.  As the children rehearse up in the sanctuary, several of the ladies of the kitchen are finishing up the treat bags filled with apples, peanuts and ribbon candy while the others put the final touches on the nativity pieces. As they mend old bathrobe costumes, discuss the politics of who’s going to play the various roles, little do the ladies know what surprises are in store for them.  Known for their hilarious antics and subtle charm, they are once again called upon to step in and save the day!

 Away In The Basement is the perfect show for the whole family this Christmas season.
