My Time

Keeping mum

A debut production explores the diversity of motherhood.

The hilarious, fast-paced Motherhood the Musical is the debut show for Sunshine Coast theatre company SugarRush Productions.

The production features a cast of entirely Coast-based talent and delves into the lives of five mothers. The characters include an excited, naïve first-time mum, a single mum, a stressed-out mum of five and a career mum trying to balance work and family.

Add in some wisdom from Granny and a live band on stage and you end up with 90 minutes of sheer fun, supported by 20 great original songs including comedy hit We Leak!, blues number Baby Weight Blues and the tear-jerking I’m Danny’s Mum.

Motherhood the Musical is a rare show that any parent can relate to.

From pregnancy, to juggling kids, facing an empty nest, to anxiously awaiting one’s first grandchild, the show covers the entire wonderful, crazy journey of being a mum.

The SugarRush team is led by director Jennifer Rousset and musical director John Rush, who have more than 30 years’ experience in live music and theatre.

Check out their debut production at The Events Centre, Caloundra on August 2 at 7.30pm and August 3 at 2pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are available at
