Cindy Williams

Thru April 12/OVERLAND PARK – Starring in “The Original Chrch Basement Ladies” at the New Theatre and Restaurant. Cindy is known for her starring role in the TV series, “Laverne and Shirley. Show time is 7:30 p.m. evenings and 1 p.m. afternoon matinees. This outrageous musical comedy IA part Nunsense, part Prairie Home Companion and totally hilarious. The music is toe-tapping, the humor is nonstop and the characters can’t help but remind you of some colorful characters you may have encountered in your own church. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be learning the proper order of things, we see these ladies handle a record-breaking Christmas dinner, a Hawaiian Easter Fund Raiser, and a steaming hot July wedding. They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, and keep the Pastor on due course while thoroughly enjoying, (and tolerating) each other in a rural Minnesota church. Funny and down to earth, audiences will recognize these ladies as they witness the church year unfold from below the house of God. >MORE
