Musical looks to create laughs for moms

March 24, 2013


Two Kansas University alumnae have teamed up to create “Mother%$!#Hood,” a musical comedy showing next month at the Lawrence Arts Center.

The show — which follows three very different moms as they sing and dance their way through life from pregnancy tests to empty nests — will be at 7:30 p.m. April 5 at the Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire St. Tickets are $10 and available online at or by calling 843-2787.

The Arts Center performance will be the public debut of “Mother%$!#Hood,” a stage reading creators describe as a complete but visually stripped down version of the production.

Writers Julie Dunlap and Sara Stotts met in 1991 at KU, where they were active in Rock Chalk Revue and shared a love of music and comedy. Offstage, Stotts practices physical therapy in Chicago, where she lives with her husband and two children. Dunlap, a part-time writer, lives in Lawrence with her husband and their four children.
