Wow, Austin! To say we are still reeling from our shows Thursday night and Saturday afternoon would be an understatement. The magic in the auditorium was palpable, and the laughter and tears were flowing as our cast read each of their stories. Audience members left with smiles and warm hearts and lots and lots of tissues in their pockets.
“I’m going to make this a Mother’s Day tradition. Seeing this will make me a better parent.”
“Thank you for helping me feel like I’m not alone…”
“The show wasn’t just a testament to motherhood, it was a show about humanity.”
We are so filled with gratitude towards everyone who helped make this show possible. We truly could not have done this on our own.
To our brave and talented cast, thank you for sharing your stories with us and with the audience. Each one of you brought something truly special to the stage, and we’re honored to have been a part of that.
To Ann Imig and the Listen to Your Mother national team, thank you for trusting us to carry on this project and for your unwavering support throughout.
To former Listen to Your Mother Austin producers Wendi Aarons and Liz McGuire, thank you for your gracious guidance and sound advice as we made our way as the new production team.
To our local sponsors, thank you for seeing the beauty and the potential in our show. We truly valued the contributions each of you made that helped make our show a success. And thank you to our national sponsors, Blogher and Chevy, for helping Listen to Your Mother reach even higher heights in 2014.
To our photographer, Casey Chapman-Ross, and our videographer, AHD Multimedia, thank you for your time, your talent, and the amazing moments you captured.
To our Listen to Your Mother Austin alumni, thank you for continuing to support us by promoting the show, volunteering your time, and showing your support in the audience. LTYM has truly fostered an amazing community in the Austin area.
Thank you to the wonderful staff at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center for hosting our event and catering to our every need.
And finally, thank you to our charitable cause, Hope Alliance Crisis Center, thank you for all that you do to assist those affected by family and sexual violence. It is an honor to give a portion of our proceeds to your cause.
For those of you who were in the audience, thank you for coming, and we truly hope you enjoyed the show. If you haven’t yet experienced a Listen to Your Mother show, I do hope we’ll see you in the audience next year, or maybe even up on stage to share your own story.
See you in 2015!
Leigh Ann, Kristin, and Heather
