Lakeland's Main Stage

Auditions for the musical comedy "Church Basement Ladies" is set for Sunday June 18 at 5 PM and Monday June 19 at 7 PM. Come sing ,dance and laugh with us as we prepare to celebrate the church basement kitchen and the women who work there. 

The cast consists of four women and one man each with their own distinct character as they organize the food and solve the problems of a rural Minnesota church. From the matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be learning the proper order of things as they handle a record breaking Christmas dinner,a funeral for a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter fund raiser, and a steaming hot July wedding.  They stave off disasters,share recipes, and keep the pastor on course. They are the true "steel magnolias" of the church.
