Church Basement Ladies, has been playing to sellout crowds for years. Now is your chance to see it! The church basement kitchen throughout much of America is often the heart and soul of any church. In "Church Basement Ladies" we meet the pastor, three main kitchen cooks and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation by preparing and serving the food. Like any great kitchen, problems are solved here as well. We see the four women handle a Lutefisk Dinner, a funeral, an Easter Fund Raiser, and, of course, a wedding. The stave off potential disasters, have fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on due course. This musical comedy based on recipes, food, and change in the church is funny, heart warming, and down to earth. It will bring back memories of many people you know from churches everywhere.

Rock to the music of the Beatles in an all new interactive concert experience where the audience creates the playlist for the night, EVERY NIGHT! There's no denying that everyone has a Beatles song attached to an event in their life. Through laughter and personal stories, Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience connects the audience and performers in a way like none other. Each performance becomes a unique and remarkable event. With dead-on musical precision and stunning set designs, your theatre will be immersed in the sights, sounds and memories of the 1960's.

What's your favorite Beatles song? When asked this question, people don't just tell you the name of the song. They tell you a story associated with that song, about a first love, a first kiss or a touching story about a parent or the loss of a loved one. Simply put, The Beatles music is the soundtrack to our lives. Yesterday and Today gets to the heart of that. This show takes the incredible music of The Beatles and personalizes it with the stories and perspectives of audience members. The show becomes a therapeutic musical session with laughter and tears and personal stories that connect the audience, band and performers in a way that no other show can.
