"Church Basement Ladies" at Barter

Date(s):  May 12 - August 25, 2019
Venue: Barter Theatre
133 West Main Street
Abingdon, VA 24212

ABINGDON, Va.- "Church Basement Ladies" is a musical comedy about the women who are the backbone of the church, women you might recognize from your own congregation. Playing at Barter Stage II, May 12 — Aug. 25. Starring Barter favorites like Tricia Matthews, Rick McVey, Paris Bradstreet and more.

The ladies of the local church fortify their flock with love, wisdom and, of course, the food they prepare in the church’s basement kitchen. Bringing their own special brand of humor, the story of the four women, as they organize the food and solve the problems of their church, mixes together music, characters, and sidesplitting scenes to serve up a delightful journey. Funny and down-to-earth, you will recognize and embrace these ladies as they witness the church year unfold from below the house of God.

"Church Basement Ladies" will have a performance during Barter Days this summer, which allows patrons to barter for a ticket to the show, and incorporates two Open-Caption performances. Visit for more information on those special dates.

Tickets start at $20. Book your seats at or call the box office at 276-628-3991.
