No one can dish out love, life and a casserole like the ladies do in this production, which opens Saturday and runs through Aug. 17. It’s 1960, and the gals are once again required to face the challenges of change head-on.
Beverly is turning 15 and gets her first pair of high heels for Confirmation, and Karin is finally learning how to drive. Mrs. Snustad and Mrs. Gilmerson plan a food booth at the county fair to raise money and the pastor announces his impending nuptials.
Against the shifting tide, these pillars of the church stand strong in their faith and in their friendships with more crazy antics, more new songs and more lessons reluctantly learned.
Returning to reprise their roles are Licia Watson as Vivian Snustad, Karen Pappas as the always entertaining Mavis Gilmerson, Hillary Smith as Beverly Engelson and Eddie Curry as Pastor Gunderson. Carrie SaLoutos joins the cast in the role of Beverly’s mother, Karin Engelson.
