Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping
JUNE 6 – 9 | HANSEN THEATRE | MUSICAL/PG
The show takes us from serving the High School students at the Luther League Banquet to a church sponsored Missionary Night and the rise and fall of a Viking’s Super Bowl Sunday. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young mom-to-be, these women find strength in each other as they deal with the joys and upheavals from below the “House of God!” Purchase tickets online today!
The Glass Menagerie
JUNE 13 – 16 | GAEDE STAGE | DRAMA/PG
Tennessee Williams achieved his first major success with this autobiographical “memory play,” which looks at the Wingfield family — frustrated writer Tom, his nagging mother, Amanda, who is often lost in memories of her Southern-belle past, and his painfully shy sister, Laura — and the effect a visit from a “gentleman caller” for Laura has on all their lives.

Hello, Dolly! the blockbuster Broadway hit, bursts with humor, romance, high-energy dancing, and some of the greatest songs in musical theater history. The romantic and comic exploits of Dolly Gallagher-Levi, turn-of-the-century matchmaker and “woman who arranges things,” are certain to thrill and entertain audiences again and again.
