Jan. 9, 2016: Sign Ups have ended. Thank you for your interest in auditioning for Listen To Your Mother’s Atlanta Show. Stay tuned for ticket information!
It’s Time, Atlanta!
In a few months (tentatively April 23, TBA soon), a whole new cast will be taking the stage for Atlanta’s third Listen To Your Mother Show. With 41 cities across North America for 2016, 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, and all varieties of writers are invited to audition.
“I’m not 100% sure I understand what Listen To Your Mother is.”
That’s a perfectly fine comment, my friend. LTYM is a live stage show of readings from people just like you, about motherhood. It’s funny and sad and sometimes slightly irreverent (but mostly G to PG rated) and an experience that will leave you changed as both a cast member or as an audience member. Want to see some videos? Here are the readings from 2014 and 2015‘s Atlanta shows.
You good now?
Here’s what you need to know right now:
- Sign up to audition HERE. This form will ask for some very simple and basic information so we can set our audition locations centrally to those who are interested. This form will CLOSE on January 8.
- Auditions will be held on January 23 and 24. Once signups have closed on January 8, you will be notified of the locations and will be sent a link to sign up for time slots.
- Essays must be about motherhood and five (5) minutes or less when read aloud. Bring your original work – funny, sad, poignant – about the beauty, the beast, and the barely-rested that is motherhood. Write about being a mother, having a mother, or even if you’re not a mother, write about not being a mother.
- Questions? If you find yourself confused by something or just needing more information, email us at LTYMAtlanta@gmail.com.
