Listen To Your Mother Boulder 2017– Our Grand Finale Season!

by stephaniesprenger on October 6, 2016

We are so excited to announce that Listen To Your Mother Boulder will return for its 5th and final season this Mother’s Day! This spring, 33 cities will give motherhood a microphone for a grand finale season that will undoubtedly be memorable.

In the words of our national team . . .

In 2010 Listen To Your Mother put forth a mission:

The mission of each LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER production is to take the audience on a well-crafted journey that celebrates and validates mothering through giving voice to motherhood–in all of its complexity, diversity, and humor–in the form of original readings performed live on-stage by their authors. To date LTYM local director/producers have hosted over 150 live shows in 54 cities. LTYM hosts 2000 videos from those shows on our YouTube channel, which features a wide array of powerful voices capturing all facets of contemporary parenting as well as stories about our own upbringing.

As we approach our 2017 season, Listen To Your Mother can say with triumph: Mission accomplished. We’ve hit our stride! And like each live LTYM show, we aim to culminate this project on a high note with a grand finale season!!

We are so honored to be participating in this exciting final season and can’t wait to see what Boulder has to offer this year! This will be our second year as a production team, and our 4th year as cast members! You can learn more about us here. After a wonderful 2016 season and beautiful show last April, we are ready to take on our next show!

We’ll post details as soon as we have them, and you can stay in touch with Listen to Your Mother on Facebook or Twitter, and sign up for the monthly newsletter. Get ready, Boulder! We can’t wait!

The 2016 Show!

May 9, 2016

On Saturday, April 30th, the 4th annual Listen To Your Mother Boulder show took place at Unity of Boulder. We are still floating from the incredible experience; there really is nothing like the special brand of magic that belongs to Listen To Your Mother Shows. The house was packed, the cast all read more beautifully and courageously than ever before, and the audience blew our minds with their enthusiasm, energy, and support. It was an evening that we will all remember forever. We are so grateful to our fantastic photographer and local sponsor Liv of Tiny Dragon Photography. Here are some of the beautiful moments she captured that night.   We arrived early and had plenty of time for bonding, focusing, primping, and practicing. We had tons of fun before the show. Maybe a little too much fun. The show itself went beautifully; the audience (and cast) laughed and cried and cheered on every […]

Celebrating Local Sponsor Missy J’s Snacks & Treats

April 25, 2016

I have a huge sweet tooth problem. I love candy and sweets, particularly chocolate, and I never do well when I try to deprive myself of treats. It’s always such a hard balance between indulging in sweets and trying to stay healthy! Colorado, especially Boulder, is known for being a health-conscious community, and we are lucky to have many healthier options in terms of dining and grocery shopping close by. Our fantastic local sponsor, Missy J’s Snacks & Treats, provides a service that is very much needed in our community: a healthier option for the sweet snacks so many of us crave. Here’s what founder Jodi Feinhor-Dennis has to say about her business: Our mission is to provide “better for you” snacks + treats that, first and foremost taste divine, are free from unhealthy ingredients like white processed sugar, dairy, caffeine, are lower glycemic and non gmo. We pack our treats with love, […]
