Listen To Your Mother is a village.

Other than show day, the most exhilarating day of Listen To Your Mother season is Cast Announcement day!

It’s also one of the hardest, knowing that we could fill our stage with way more amazing stories than we have time for. We’re grateful to all who auditioned and shared their wonderful stories and hearts with us.

Listen To Your Mother is a village. It really is.

Miranda and I are honored to announce the readers we will all be able to hear in our show on April 29.

Congratulations, Cast of 2017!

LTYM Atlanta Sign-Ups Are LIVE For 2017!

by jana on January 6, 2017


Sign ups for auditions will close on January 22.

Your stories are written. Your nerves are steeled. There is no stopping you now.



Miranda and I are so thrilled to be on this LTYM journey once last time, y’all. We’ve been planning and prepping and AHHHHHH-ing at one another in the middle of hammering out the details.

Our last three shows have been complete dreams come true and we are ready to show off Atlanta’s talents one last time in this Grand Finale Season of Listen To Your Mother.

But we need YOU to make it happen.

We know you have a story to tell, one that is just itching to break out and find a new life and a new audience, and we believe Listen To Your Mother is the place for it. Your story matters and we want to hear it.

If that story is a true story about motherhood and clocks in around 5 minutes or less, you might find yourself standing behind that microphone (yes, that exact one up there) this Spring.

Listen To Your Mother: Atlanta auditions will be held on Saturday, February 4 and Saturday February 11. The audition location and times will be selected/assigned once sign-ups are closed or once we’ve gauged enough responses to decide the most central location to hold them.

Sign-ups are LIVE so get to it! We can’t wait to meet you and see what magic Atlanta has in store for us this season!


Don’t let the spamminess of that link fool you. We are SO, SO excited to have you on this journey with us and we’re thankful and appreciative that you’re trusting us with your stories.


Be sure to like Listen To Your Mother on Facebook and check out our 2016, 2015, and 2014 shows on YouTube. But fair warning–grab some tissues first.

It’s Story Time, Atlanta!

December 20, 2016

It’s Story Time, Atlanta! In a few short months (date and location being finalized), a whole new cast will be taking the stage for Atlanta’s fourth Listen To Your Mother Show. With 32 cities across North America for 2017’s Grande Finale Season, there will be hundreds of stories being heard on and around Mother’s Day. Why shouldn’t one of those stories be YOURS? “But I’m not a writer.” If you can write your story down the way you would tell it, you’re actually a writer! Not all of our cast members have been professional writers. “I’m deathly afraid to speak in public.” Heard that one before (me). Nobody has panicked and passed out on our stage before so I think you’ll be ok! “I’m a guy and clearly not a mother. But I think I have a story.” Bring it on! We love stories from guys (like Benjamin) and well, from anyone and everyone! All ages, genders, ethnicities, […]
