Mom’s the Word
by Linda A. Carson, Jill Daum, Alison Kelly, Robin Nichol, Barbara Pollard and Deborah Williams
Put six mothers in a room and ask them to describe motherhood and you’re sure to get an earful!
Part comedy, part variety show, these women share their best and most hilarious personal confessions about the sleepless nights, the kissed booboos, the mushbrain, the libido strain, the breastmilk malfunctions, the diaper horror stories – all the chaos, absurdity, heartache, and wonder of motherhood they could fit into two short hours.
Created in 1994 for Vancouver’s “Women In View” festival, this award-winning performance has been a fan favourite at international comedy festivals and is performed globally in a variety of languages.
The Marvelous Wonderettes
by Roger Bean
When songleader squad mates Missy, Suzy, Betty Jean, and Cindy Lou are called on short notice to sing at their senior prom, the spotlight proves a prize difficult to share as their personal lives clash and intersect in hilarious high school fashion.
Performing your favourite pop songs from the 1950s and 60s (Mr Sandman, Lollipop, It’s My Party, and many others), The Marvelous Wonderettes will transport you back to a golden era when sock hops, hula hoops, and letter sweaters were the latest trends–and true friendship never went out of style!
Performed at the El Portal theatre in Los Angeles for a record-setting 18 months, as well as off-Broadway in New York City’s famous Westside Theatre for 14 months, this jukebox musical by Roger Bean won the Ovation award for Best Production of a Musical in 2007.
