A loving look at the trials and tribulations of raising children, PARENTING 101 was conceived by sisters Nancy Holson and and Susan Holson. Observing parenting skills and styles together since birth, both women have children and drew on their own experiences in creating PARENTING 101. In addition, Nancy Holson is the Emmy Award winning creator of The News In Revue and Bush Wars. PARENTING 101 is authored by Nancy Holson and Jay Falzone, with Book and Lyrics by Nancy Holson and Jay Falzone. The production was directed and choreographed by Jay Falzone.

The musical review includes a song for every milestone of PARENTING 101 from labor pains, through sleep deprivation, potty training, puberty, dating, teen troubles, college, marriage and finally, the kids getting married and giving birth to kids of their own.

Each song is a well-known pop or show tune with new comic lyrics that capture the moments that all parents (and grandparents) know and remember all of their lives.

The cast of four actor/singer/dancers play Moms, Dads, Grandmas, and kids at every stage of growing up, from toddler to new Mom & Dad. The three-member band includes keyboard, drums and guitar. For more information visit: http://parenting101themusical.com
