Shows will take place on Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets, $15-25, are available by calling 508.432.2002 or visiting www.hjtcapecod.org.
Mama and Her Boys is an original musical act created by and starring Ethan Paulini, Christopher Sidoli and Wendy Watson. Through an eclectic mix of new and classic songs, they explore the dynamic, funny and touching relationship between mothers, sons and families.
Premiering as part of Cape Rep's Winter Series, Mama and Her Boys has gone on to enjoy bookings all over the east coast over the past two years, including a critically acclaimed, multiple extension run in Provincetown last June-October.
The HJT engagement will mark a new production featuring several favorite Mama and Her Boys highlights as well as a new book by Paulini and Tony Award Nominee Linda Kline. The HJT engagement will feature Paulini, Sidoli and Watson with Sean K. Maddox and Joan Kirchner at the keys.
Paulini: "Christopher and I met at HJT nearly 20 years ago and have always considered it home. Nina, Tammy and the entire staff is committed to excellence in theatre and theatre education. We couldn't think of a better place to premiere this show. Our show is about families and HJT has always been a big part of ours".
Beyond HJT, look for the premiere of A Mama and Her Boys Christmas, as well a New York run in early 2013.
