Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping

Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping produced an entertaining conclusion for the 2010 Merry-Go-Round Playhouse season.

A talented ensemble of actors provided this “family-friendly” musical with a slew of sight gags and physical humor. Brought bak memories of the old St. Alphonsus minstrel shows.

My only disappointment was that Greta Grosch’s decided to write the book for this show rather than reprise her role as Vivian.

Pastor Gutherson (Ed Romanoff), the single male character, did a terrific take on ‘60s rock-n-roll, especially his perfect Chuck Berry duck walk.

Previous productions this summer:
The Drowsy Chaperone
Promises, Promises
Meet Me in St. Louis
Man of La Mancha
Ring of Fire
