Motherhood Out Loud

Coming Spring 2023!

Motherhood Out Loud is a collection of short plays that tells the hilarious, touching and sometimes agonizing story of motherhood, covering many different angles from cradle to grave.

 

Stories from 14 playwrights are carefully curated into themed chapters. In “Fast Births” we witness the miracle of life followed by a new mom receiving unwanted sex advice from her own mother. “First Day” introduces us to gay dads, adoption, and a mother coping with her child’s gender identity. Other chapters cover sex talks, step-motherhood, first dates, leaving the nest, marriage and adulthood.

Utterly unpredictable, Motherhood Out Loud shatters traditional notions about parenthood, unveils its inherent comedy and celebrates the deeply personal truths that span and unite generations. Variety called the show “Chicken Soup for the Mom,” while BackStage summed it up as “storytelling at its sweetest.”

A New Chapter for STC

Studio Players, an unconventional black box theatre experience, was created in 2012 as a unique alternative to the main stage productions at Sheboygan Theatre Company (STC).
 

Great theatre can come in all shapes and sizes, and some shows prove more dynamic in an intimate setting. Studio Players strives to offer content that is thought-provoking, engaging, and entertaining while welcoming a broad range of experience levels.
 

Works containing adult themes, contemporary issues, and/or language are explored within our productions.

Taking advantage of the experience and talent of some of STC’s most dedicated volunteers, Studio Players launched three sold-out productions in the Fall and Winter of 2012 and the Spring of 2013. Studio Players expanded its season to include a Summer production in 2013, creating a four-production season featuring two dramas and two comedies.

Since then, Studio Players has staged a variety of productions in venues around Sheboygan, and continues to engage audiences in distinctive and unexpected ways.
