Motherhood-the-Musical.jpg.728x520_q85A baby is just the beginning. Motherhood is for life.
It’s the joyous journey and loving look at the blessings and perils of being a Mum. It’s climbing the emotional mountain only to find that there’s laundry at the top. It’s discovering how powerful your love can be and how quickly they grow up. It’s helping them find their way and not losing yours. It’s about laughing and crying, craziness and calm, smiles and tears … all before breakfast and coming to the Glen Street Theatre stage in Motherhood the Musical.
Motherhood the Musical is a hilarious, musical journey through the lives of four women. There’s Barb, the over-worked, underpaid, stressed-out mother of five. There’s Brooke, the lawyer, who works too much and barely sees her kids. There’s Trisha, a single mum who’s struggling to juggle it all and Amy, the naïve 20-something about to have her first child. As the three friends throw Amy a baby shower, the truth about motherhood comes out into the open: the diapers, the dirty laundry, the lazy husbands and everything in-between.
This musical written by award-winning singer/songwriter Sue Fabisch, features 20 sensational songs including her Top 10 Billboard Comedy Hit “The Kids Are Finally Asleep”. Having received rave reviews during its Australian Premiere in Melbourne in February 2011 this joyous musical journey exposes the blessings and the perils of being a Mum in 90 minutes of great entertainment. Motherhood the Musical is directed by Terence O’Connell (Busting Out, Rocky Horror Picture Show) and features an exciting ensemble cast including Amelia Christo (Me and My Girl), Ziggy Clements (Mamma Mia), Jacqueline Hoy (Sweeney Todd) and in her professional touring debut, Rebecca Moore.

For everyone who is, has, or knows a Mum.
