“An amazing home grown talent that just has to go to the world………”
These were the words used by AGLOW International’s, Sue Peacock, to describe Jane Kellaway’s captivating workshop performance of “The Mother’s Club™”, a one woman show about the rollercoaster ride of motherhood. Set in the late 1980’s/early 1990’s, The Mother’s Club™ explores the journey of dating, falling in love, getting married, falling pregnant and having children over a 25 year period.
“Just beautiful……..and we laughed and we cried……” added Sue, who was among 50 people who attended the workshop back in November 2018 and gave Jane a standing ovation.
Since then, Jane has hit the Love Hz Studio in Leichhardt, NSW, recorded the 17 song sound track to The Mother’s Club™ show with none other than the multi talented/multi instrumentalist Michael Carpenter (Damien Leith, Chris Murphy, Hayley Jensen) and has built herself a stunning set, all with the help of her hubby Fred - the brains of the operation.
“The Mother’s Club™ came about because I didn’t want Jane to be performing in pubs anymore and it was time to make a change” said hubby Fred. “We have 4 kids and decided we could get a good return on our investment if we wrote about them! The Mother’s Club™ was born”.
Definitely no stranger to performing, Jane has been around the entertainment industry for more than 20 years both behind the mic as a radio and tv presenter as well as in front of it as a singer and event compare. Her many years of performing on stage at the Sydney Opera House have left her in good stead as Jane pulls all her skills together to bring you this amazing show.
“I was captivated as I sat through the musical, The Mother’s Club™. A unique, magical personality unrolled a journey through motherhood. At times I laughed till it hurt, at times I cried, at times I remembered. The production is one of integrity, decency and honesty straight from the heart”. Barry Prince - cartoonist/illustrator/writer
Barry was joined by legendary radio presenters Mike Stewart and Trevar Langlands from 2MCR, and about 200 other locals at the Camden Civic Centre just last month to see Jane strut her stuff and bring to life the inaugural full production of The Mother’s Club™ musical.
“This show is all about sharing my story and giving people hope to know that you’re not on your own” said Jane as she stood on stage at the end of her performance to greet and thank her beloved audience. “And if you want to come and talk with me about anything, I’ll be down the back shortly to have a chat with you”. Now that’s the beautiful heart of a wonderful woman right there.
The only thing left to do now is to grab yourself a ticket and come to the show and see for yourself.
