Story and Book
Music by Jamey Strawn
Lyrics by Christine Jones
A new campy, cheeky, audacious
musical comedy. The ladies of the Umatilla Second Christian Church Women’s Auxiliary League are getting together
to produce their annual Mother’s Day Pageant. Six men play every character in this singing, acting, dancing, improv
tour de force. As the ‘Church Girls’ prepare for their pageant, chaos and calamity bring out less than ‘saintly’
behavior. The result is Heaven sent hilarity!
“It’s hoot. Actually, that is too mild a word.
At its heart, this is a showcase for six journeymen actors (and one musician) to strut their prodigious talents…The
result is like the funnyman’s version of an ESPN highlight reel – nonstop humor from first-rate pros. When
they turn their attention to the serious business of humor – to primping and eyelash-batting, to hip-wiggling, to catty
banter, to the deliciously clever maze of men playing women who are mocking men – it’s a ball.”—Review
