If Emma’s mom is so great, why is she trying to ruin her daughter’s life? She talks too loudly, worries about everything and kisses Emma in front of her friends. It wouldn’t be that bad if she just gave her one kiss on top of her head, but no, she kisses Emma all over her face.
Can Emma stop her mom before she ruins the rest of her life?

Based on the acclaimed Simon & Schuster picture book by Kate Feiffer, My Mom is Trying to Ruin My Life is a hilarious new family musical for kids and their embarrassing parents.
