Naturally it’s laced with Buckeye football history, but the core of the show isn’t about football at all. It’s about how to be a success in life. It’s about being a winner, taking personal responsibility, understanding the importance of education, hard work and paying forward, all presented against the backdrop of world history and Buckeye football. Based on hours and hours of interviews with players and coaches including Richard Mack, Kurt Schumacher, Dave Foley, Bill Armstrong, Chuck Hutchinson, Tom Batista, Craig Cassady, Coach Chuck Clausen, alan Jack, John Hicks, Richard Ferko, Archie Griffin, Ted Provost, Jeff Kaplan, Mark George, Rex Kern and coach Earle Bruce.

The Church Basement Ladies
A Mighty Fortress is our Basement



A celebration of the church basement kitchen and the women who work there, Church Basement Ladies is a new musical comedy featuring four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize the food and solve the problems of a rural Minnesota church about to undergo changes in 1964. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be learning the proper order of things, we see them handle a record breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter Fund Raiser, and, of course, a steaming hot July wedding. They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the Pastor on due course while thouroughly enjoying (and tolerating) each other as they true “steel magnolias” of the church. Funny and down to earth, audience will recognize these ladies as they witness the church year unfold from below the house of God. This is most certainly true!
