I can finally announce that I will be making a return to the stage! A one day only performance that you won’t want to miss! I have the honor of being a part of a nationwide effort to “give motherhood a microphone”as a cast member of the 2016 Lehigh Valley production of Listen To Your Mother. I could not be more excited! Our show will be one of 41 cities across the country and through these shows over 450 stories about motherhood will be shared this year.
What makes me proud about this project is that I wrote my piece; “There’s No Modesty In Motherhood”. Me a writer?!?! Who would have thought? Of course in true Mel fashion its a comical piece and centers around the toilet & my lady parts, but would you expect anything less? This was the scariest audition I ever had because I was so out of my element and when I received word that out of all the talented creative people in the LHV I was selected I cried tears of joy.
This show is not just for women by any means and is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day. If you have a mother, know a mother, love a mother, lost a mother, made someone a mother, long to be a mother, are a mother reading this covered in snot, sitting in a school pick up line, hiding out on the toilet, avoiding housework, then I hope you will join me and my amazing cast on Sunday, April 24th from 2-4 pm at The Steel Stacks. Tickets will be going on sale soon. I will be posting more about this amazing creative opportunity and my journey.
Now the big dilemma WHAT WILL I WEAR????
