"The nearly sold out crowd at the Creamery Theatre ate up this deliciously funny musical with a spoon and so did we. Though it’s sweeter than cherry fluff, I can’t help but love the Church Basement Ladies especially because this light-hearted comedy provides the perfect vehicle for the satisfyingly funny antics of stars Kay Francis, Sean McCall, Carrie SaLoutos and Nikki Savitt. These four hugely talented comedians have made every single one of the OCTC’s CBLs a sheer delight." —Emilie Hoppe with the Amana Bulletin
"As evident from the title, men whom we’ve heard about in earlier episodes make an appearance. Their inclusion gives rise to differences of opinion as the town is preparing for its Diamond Jubilee. The play, set in Minnesota, summer of 1964, is authentically staged and costumed for the time period. It’s entertaining and funny, yet poignant, as the characters encounter the stress of preparing for a town milestone event while also undergoing difficult, interpersonal changes." —Evelyn Moore with Brown Deer Living Magazine
