This time around, the year is 1969 and the world around this small rural Minnesota Community is changing. As protests of the Vietnam War increase and the women everywhere are demanding equal work, the four ladies of the Lutheran church basement kitchen are facing changes of their own, with help from their pastor, ...all while still laughing and singing together and finding strength in one another. 

ACT did the 1st installment three years ago with the same cast and with sold out houses!

Inspired by the books of Janet Letnes Martin and Suzann Nelson. 

Music and Lyrics by Drew Jansen and Dennis Curley.
