Church Basement Ladies is a musical comedy, book by Jim Stowell and Jessica Zuehlke, music and lyrics by Drew Jansen. The story is about the ladies that work in the church basement cooking meals for church functions, and is inspired by the humorous book Growing Up Lutheran, by Janet Letnes Martin and Suzann Nelson. Published in 1997, Growing Up Lutheran is a “scrapbook of memories” of what it was like to grow up Lutheran in the Midwest in the 1950s. In addition to their bestseller, Martin and Nelson, aka “Those Lutheran Ladies,” have written numerous other works, including Growing Up Rural, published in 2017. Their lives and writings have inspired seven additional Church Basement Ladies musicals. The eighth sequel to the play, “The Church Basement Ladies Plowin’ Thru” premiered at The Ames Center in Burnsville MN on September 7, 2022.
