I didn’t audition for Listen To Your Mother because I was afraid. I wasn’t brave enough to open my notebook and share a story about motherhood. The whole project would have been way out of my comfort zone. Yet, a small part of me wants to push those limits. A small part of me yearns to hear my voice, my words fill an auditorium. To hear the laughter and applause. To feel that my story matters. Maybe next year.
Listen To Your Mother comes to Orange County on Sunday, April 27th. The production is directed, produced and performed by local communities across the nation in celebration of Mother’s Day. It’s certain to be a wonderful afternoon of live readings from local writers on the beauty, the beast and the barely-rested nature of motherhood. Bring your tissues.
What I love is the LTYM mission: to support parents and communities in both creative and tangible ways. The benefits of LTYM reach beyond the audience and cast, with a portion of the proceeds from all productions going to a national charitable cause and local community charitable causes supporting mothers and families. The producers of LTYM The OC have chosen WISEPlace – A Community of Housing and Hope for Women – to receive 10% of ticket proceeds.
