Motherhood The Musical is a 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.

Brought to you by the Australian Producer of the smash hit Menopause The Musical®, Motherhood The Musical will travel nationally for another 25 weeks in 2012 to capital city, metropolitan and regional theatre venues throughout Australia.
