Monday, November 14: The Church Basement Ladies are back in "Away in the Basement" where they will take 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.

"Away in the Basement" is the perfect show for the whole family this Christmas season. There will be two shows in one day, at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 each or $28 for groups of eight or more.
