Motherhood The Musical is an hilarious, musical journey about the lives of four mums. There’s Barb, an over-worked, underpaid, stressed-out mother of five; Brooke, the lawyer, who works too much and barely sees her kids; Trisha, a single mum struggling to balance work, her family and her divorce; and finally Amy, the naive young woman about to have her first child. As the three friends throw Amy a baby shower, the truth about motherhood (the good, the bad and the ugly) all come out into the open: the nappies, the dirty laundry, the lazy husbands, juggling the demands of children and a career and everything in between.
Having received rave reviews during its 45-week 2011 Australian tour, 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. You’ll love this joyous musical journey as it takes a look at the blessings and the perils of being a mum. This is all about laughing and crying, craziness and calm, smiles and tears, all wrapped up into 90 minutes of great musical entertainment.
9pm Sunday, Byron Theatre, Community Centre.
