Expressing Motherhood  is excited to debut a new cast in Tacoma, Washington this Fall.

Local Producer Andrea Archambault will be leading this cast and taking the show back to her home city.

AndreaBusiness
Andrea was born and raised in the Seattle/Tacoma area and has a love for everything Northwest! Since moving to Redondo Beach, CA, she realizes that she even misses the rain!  She is a wife to the most incredibly supportive husband, mom to a spirited, hilarious little girl, and a step-mom to two amazing teenage boys, an entrepreneur and a self proclaimed foodie. She is the founder/owner of andreaarchambault.com. In her career as a Health Coach she helps moms reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm, increase energy and get their glow back! Working with moms is her passion as she knows both the joy, challenges, and messiness that come with motherhood.

She is a true believer that we are more alike, then we are different.  Everyone has a story and when we share these stories with the world, it brings us closer together. When she attended her first Expressing Motherhood show, she was instantly in love and inspired!  As the first story was shared on that stage, she knew that Expressing Motherhood had to make it to the Northwest!  Prior to starting her Health Coaching Practice, Andrea worked for a small community theatre company.  There she learned the ins and outs of theatre production and management. This job was put in her life to prepare her to become a local Producer/Director for Expressing Motherhood-Tacoma.

The shows will be this Fall at the Tacoma Youth Theatre. We will announce dates and times ASAP.

NEW VENUE**HOLLYWOOD

Theatre is not dull.

Yesterday I received an email that the theatre I have had booked was closing its doors at the end of this month.

In between wiping up vomit from my 4 year-old I secured a new theatre for the February show.

The show will no longer be in Silver Lake but rather in Hollywood on Fairfax at the lovely Open Space Cafe and Theatre.

February 7th at 7PM, one night only.

Support your local theatre peeps, the cities are getting so pricey we are losing our theatres left and right.

Thank you all for your understanding!

Tickets here.

This fall my husband and I lost our beloved friend Marcel Langenegger. He was a former neighbor. Our kids played together as he hand wrote the Expressing Motherhood logo that we have used for years. His widow, my dear friend, Nete Oernsholt, has done most of our graphics for years. I would have her daughter over in exchange for her work.

I’m honored that some of his creativity and passion went into Expressing Motherhood. He was an acclaimed international director and yet one sunny afternoon in the Hollywood Hills, he wrote our logo, with his shirt off I must add. He and his wife and our children played together at the time.

Creative collaboration is the heart and soul of Expressing Motherhood.  I’m forever grateful to have known him.
