LTYM local directors and producers are busy securing venues and planning for 2013 auditions. Some cities plan to request written submissions as a first-step, while others will invite everyone to audition. Below please find an update from each city, with more information on their auditions.
Subscribe to your local site (find under “local shows” on nav bar above), or check it regularly for updates. Pay attention to submission deadlines, because some come up soon–for instance Chicago’s deadline is January 15th.
Remember, regular everyday people with a story to tell make up the heart of LTYM. You don’t need to call yourself a writer. You don’t need any performing experience. You just need to share the story in your heart or on your mind.
Putting together an LTYM show reminds Stephanie Precourt (former Northwest Indiana director and current Online Content Manager) of putting together a great playlist about motherhood. Don’t try to give us the whole playlist with your piece–just give us your unique story and voice.
We can’t wait to hear/read your words!
