Boulder’s Listen To Your Mother Show is Back!

by Joelle on November 22, 2014

Pam and I are so excited to announce that we are bringing the Listen To Your Mother Show back to Boulder for the 3rd time!

What started as one show in Madison, WI in 2010 has become a phenomenon. This year we are so proud to announce that Listen to Your Mother: Boulder will be one of 39 shows nationwide!

Check our National Site’s Announcement Post Here!

Our shows in 2013 and 2014 really brought our community together as local writers stood on stage and bared their souls with heart-wrenching, heart-warming and hilarious stories about motherhood.

In 2014 we even persevered through pregnancy and a late Spring snowstorm that threatened our ability to wear our strappy sandals. But we did it. We wore our strappy sandals despite the 12 inches of snow and we liked it. And the Boulderites proved that they are a hearty lot and showed up anyway. Because we love our moms and being moms and celebrating moms.

We can’t wait to hear the stories. Your stories. Because, you know, this is all about you. And you. And you. Get out your pens or your laptops or your etch-a-sketchs and your memories and write your story down. We are looking for well-written, engaging stories about motherhood, told by a diverse group of people. Did you notice, I said “people” not “mothers”? You don’t need to be female. You don’t need to be a mother. You don’t even need to like children (or pets). ANYONE who has something to say about motherhood can be involved….Motherhood is not a requirement.

We are looking for that one funny story where your kid embarrassed you in the store that one time, that personal story that you have never told anyone, or that one story that makes your eyes well up just thinking about it. Stories are powerful. Your story is powerful.

LTYM Boulder: WE DID IT!

May 16, 2014

We did it. We began as a group of srangers just a few short months ago and took the stage this Sunday as a unit. We laughed together and cried together as we shared our stories in rehearsals, at first tentatively, then more confidently. We laughed together and cried together, on Sunday, as we shared our stories with our audience, this time with a unique electricity present. And we are so very, very grateful. We are grateful to our cast. They were brave, they were vulnerable, and they were honest as they shared their stories. We are grateful to our audience, who ventured out on a miserable, snowy evening to bear witness to our stories. We are grateful to national Listen To Your Mother organization. Without your support and guidance we could never have done it. We are grateful to our national media sponsors, BlogHer and Chevrolet, whose support made it possible for […]
