Once a year we set aside a day to celebrate our mothers and that day will be here before we know it! Mother’s Day is less than a month away! Don’t procrastinate and make plans today. Luckily for you, we here at N3 have the solution to your mother’s day gift slump. Instead of the usual flower baskets and Sunday brunch, take Mom out to a show! On May 6th and 7th at 7:30pm, LionHeart Productions presents Motherhood The Musical by Sue Fabisch at the Grant Fine Arts Center. This hilarious show will have you rolling with laughter!
Directed by Dana McKnight and music direction by Cali Flock, this small show is filled with big voices. The cast is made up of LionHeart alumni, Gabby Kasnowicz as Amy, Mandy Casebolt as Barb, Cammie Hollinger as Brooke and Megan Wirts as Tina. The former three were all in the smash hit Mama Mia in 2019, the last musical that LionHeart was able to produce for us before the pandemic happened. While Megan Wirts hasn’t been on the stage since 2014, she is thrilled to be back! Each cast member is fantastic on their own, but together they make the highs and lows of motherhood sound incredible. Not only are they excellent vocalists, their comedic timing and touching tender moments are on point.
Motherhood the Musical is one of those shows that you will want to see again and again. The songs are catchy, the content relatable and the characters are hilarious and real. If you are a mother, have a mother, or know a mother, this show is for you. There are songs about shopping, leaking and the ways our bodies can change after becoming a mother. There are also sweet moments that may require tissues, like when the cast sings about what it will be like when their little ones leave the nest. This show is rated PG-13 and may not be suitable for children under the age of 12. Parental discretion is advised. This show gets real about motherhood and we all know that it’s not always for the faint of heart.
With only two nights of shows offered, you will want to make sure you don’t miss your chance to see this amazing production. Friday May 6th and Saturday May 7th at 7:30pm.
Tickets are $10. Tickets will be available at the Grant Fine Arts Center Box Office later this month.
