A Mighty Fortress Is Our Basement


Rita Thomas as Vivian, Tina Jo Wallace as Mavis, and Colette Delaney as Karin


By Angela Ash


The ladies are down in the basement... cooking away again! The hilarious comedy of the Church Basement ladies is back, as the reformation of the 1960s has the ladies trying new things, singing new songs,  and still learning valuable lessons! 

Showing through October 5th, you will want to get your tickets in a hurry, because the popularity of this production is evident!  Starring Cary Wiger, Rita Thomas, Tina Jo Wallace, Colette Delaney, and Katelyn Webb, this heartwarming musical will have you tapping your feet in no time. 

Each and every performer plays their part absolutely brilliantly, but Tina Jo Wallace, as Mavis, has the crowd laughing as I have never seen before.  She takes on the role of the hysterical, "accident waiting to happen" friend that we all wish we had, as if it were created specifically for her! 

The Footnotes, Derby Dinner Playhouse's own singing spectacular, open up the show with gospel songs that tie in wonderfully with the content of the play.  As always, they gear the crowd up for the amazing night ahead.

The Derby Dinner Playhouse is located in Clarksville, Indiana... right over the bridge from Louisville, Kentucky. It is a theater in the round, and has been in operation since 1974, making it one of the oldest and largest continuously operating theatres in the country!

You will receive a top notch production for your ticket price, plus a mouth-watering meal, served buffet style, boasting favorites like fried chicken, mouth-watering pasta selections, and a meat carving station. Some of the best desserts around are also offered, like the peanut butter pie or the strawbery shortcake!

Be there early for the Footnotes, Derby Dinner Playhouse's very own musical spectacular, singing sneak peaks from upcoming shows, or additional selections connected to the night's main attraction. They are refreshing, delightful, and a great kick off to the evening's festivities!
