Expressing Motherhood is headed to Dubuque, Iowa for the first time this summer. Local Producer/Director Kerry Anderson will be bringing #ExMoShow to beautiful Iowa in July.
Kerry is a South Bay mom and ExMoShow alum, just about every summer she visits her sister and her family in Dubuque. “My children get to hang out with their cousins and experience a true midwestern summer complete with frog catching, fireflies, and porch eatin’ popsicle time.
Through Expressing Motherhood I’ve met many people with extraordinary stories who were brave enough to share it with an audience. After every show audience members would rush up to performers to tell them, “That’s my story!” or “Thank you, I needed to hear that story.” Expressing Motherhood is a gift and I want to bring that gift to one of my favorite places in the country, Dubuque.”
Kerry’s sister, Karen Anderson Rothert, and her family live in Dubuque. She will also be acting as a Local Producer along with Kerry. The show ill be performed at Karen’s alma mater, Loras College. This is the only way she could get her sister to extend her vacation time. She is excited to become an official member of the Expressing Motherhood community.
Submissions will be accepted April 10th- 14th, please send submissions to dubuque(at)expressingmotherhood.com For more submissions info please visit our submissions page.
Performers will be announced April 17th.
There will be one rehearsal on Friday, July 14th from 6:30-9:30PM. The performance will be Saturday, July 15th at 7:00PM at Loras College in the St. Joseph’s Auditorium in Hoffman Hall.
As always, Expressing Motherhood is looking for people to share their stories about motherhood on stage. Pieces need to be 5 minutes maximum. We are looking for true stories. Your stories, about motherhood. Need not be a mom!
Expressing Motherhood is thrilled to have Kerry and Karen bring this to Iowa. Looking forward to it. #ExMoShow
Expressing Motherhood is happy to kick the 2017 off with a new video series. The videos feature past performers sharing stories they have shared on the Expressing Motherhood stage, with you.
Filming the women in a studio has entailed that the pieces translate the best they can for the viewers at home. Thank you Emily DeRenzis and Megan Dolon for being the first two to participate. Emily shares her story of going over to her ex-husband’s new home for the first time.
Megan shares the story of when she first learned that her son has Aspergers.
Each piece is followed with a brief Q&A about how motherhood has inspired and/or changed their creative path. A huge thank you to them both.
Super Bowl Sunday’s show in Hollywood has been sold out for awhile.
You can watch Sunday’s show at home. Babble will be live streaming the show via their Periscope channel. If you don’t know what that means simply go to Expressing Motherhood’s Facebook page and I will post the link as soon as the show starts at 7PM PST.
Don’t delay in buying your tickets to our next LA show, our May 3rd show in Santa Monica.
We will be at the beautiful Moss Theatre next to the Herb Alpert Educational Center. I’ve been getting a strong reaction from people over 50 when they read that Herb Alpert has a theatre named after him.
The May 3rd night will be sponsored by MomDotMe and ClubMomMe. The price of your ticket will include some wine.
