"Rise up O Men" gives the gents a chance to shine in this fun filled installment of the Church Basement Ladies musical comedy series about a Lutheran church in Minnesota, circa 1964.
This latest chapter in the lives of these rural Minnesota Norwegians was developed by Greta Grosch, who wrote the scripts for the second, third, fourth, and fifth musicals in the series. Longtime Minneapolis StarTribune theatre critic, Graydon Royce, contributed additional material. Composer and songwriter Dennis Curley wrote the music, with lyrics by Dennis Curley and Greta Grosch.
