How to submit to Expressing Motherhood:

Expressing Motherhood accepts monologues, skits, songs, dances, etc.

The first person ever cast was a gay father. That being said you need not be a mom, the story just has to be yours and pertain to motherhood.

Tips for a great submission:

  • Write a piece that is no longer then 5 minutes when read aloud. You can memorize it or bring your notes up.
  • Short is sweet
  • Make your piece specific and personal. Stay away from broad, “motherhood is hard” pieces.
  • Your piece must be about your story regarding motherhood.

The nitty-gritty:

  • Make sure you can attend both rehearsals and all performances
  • Write your name on your piece
  • Send it as a Word document or in the body of an e-mail
  • Email your piece to the Local Producer running the show

Participants must attend ALL rehearsals and performances.

Thank you,
