What Mothers Do is the final production of the UTPA Children’s Theatre season 2009-2010. The production will run May 6 to 8 at 7 p.m. and May 9 at 2 p.m. at the Albert L. Jeffers Theatre in the Communication Arts & Science Building on the corner of University Drive and Sugar Road.

Bring your mother to this fun-filled play that honors those special women in our lives! Acted by just the right balance of college students and community children, this new play by co-authors Brian Warren and Marlene Galvan is a story that illustrates a mother’s love.

The play is based upon the famous nursery rhyme by Mother Goose, first published in 1794:

“There Was An Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe”

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.

She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do;

She gave them some broth without any bread;

Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

Our play does without the whipping, but it does elevate our mothers to their rightful place as #1 in our hearts. Come see the show just in time for Mother’s Day.

This offering is the third and final play in the “Holiday Trilogy” by the authors who also brought you Golden Cobwebs and The Piper and the Rats.

Children of all ages are welcomed. All tickets are general admission at $3 each. The play is approximately 50 minutes in length, and it is GUARANTEED to be hilarious yet touching.
