Announcing 2016 Auditions!

by stephaniesprenger on January 28, 2016

Hooray! It is our pleasure to announce Boulder’s Listen To Your Mother Show 2016 Auditions!

We cannot wait to hear YOUR STORIES. Yes, yours! You know you have one.

If you’re reading this and thinking you could never write your story because you’re not a writer, or thinking you could never get up on a stage and tell your story because you’re not a professional speaker, we’re here to tell you otherwise. If you have a mother, know a mother, or are a mother, you have a story to tell about motherhood.

This is not a show for professional speakers/writers (though we welcome all levels of experience). LTYM is about Motherhood and Motherhood is for EVERYONE. Your story may be the one that touches someone in the audience who needed to hear it. Your story is unique. Your story is needed.

Auditions will be in downtown Boulder by appointment only:

Saturday February 27th 10-4
Monday, February 29th 6-9 pm
Wednesday March 2nd 6-9 pm

To schedule an audition, email  ltymboulder (at) gmail (dot) com. Please write AUDITION in the subject line.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Your piece should not exceed 5 minutes. This is approximately 2 pages, but will vary widely depending on content and speaking style. PLEASE PRACTICE BEFORE SUBMITTING and edit appropriately to achieve the desired time.
  • The central theme of the story must be motherhood. We always aim for a diverse mix of stories—we look for funny essays, sad essays, and everything in between. We welcome all stories of motherhood from all people.
  • You DO NOT have to be a mother (or even a woman!) to audition.
  • You do not have to have your piece memorized. In fact, we prefer it if you do not, as this the show is a series of live readings (not performances).
  • You do not have to consider yourself a writer or have experience as a stage performer.
  • We recommend you check out videos of past shows, including Boulder’s 2013-2015 shows, which you may find here.
  • If you want more information read this.
  • If you are selected you must be present at rehearsals which will be in Boulder
    • 6-9 pm Monday March 28
    • 6-9 pm Monday April 18
  • AND on the day of the show, Saturday April 30th at Unity of Boulder, beginning at 4:00 pm. The shows is at 7pm.
  • Previously published work may be accepted as long as you have full rights to read it at this event.

Questions? Don’t be shy!! Leave them in the comments section or email them to us at ltymboulder (at) gmail (dot) com. We can’t wait to hear your stories, and we’re so excited for our 2016 Listen To Your Mother Boulder show!

Listen To Your Mother Boulder is Back!

November 17, 2015

Listen To Your Mother is returning to Boulder for the 2016 season, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! This will be Boulder’s 4th season, and we can’t wait to bring you another memorable stage show. Listen To Your Mother is bigger than ever this year, with shows in 41 cities including the first ever show in Canada! We are honored to be joining the Listen To Your Mother team as directors and producers of the 2016 Boulder show, and we’re grateful to the amazing original duo– our good friends Pam Moore and Joelle Wisler– who stepped down this year after delivering three incredible years of shows to Boulder. We are excited to carry on their legacy of sharing powerful stories with unique casts, and we’re looking forward to another great year. And who exactly are we?

Boulder LTYM; THE SHOW!!!

May 19, 2015

We did it. We began as a group of srangers just a few short months ago and took the stage on Saturday, May 9th 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 and held each other up, on Saturday, as we shared our stories with our audiences (twice!), 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 audiences, who ventured out on a miserable, snowy evening to bear witness to our stories. We are grateful to the national Listen To Your Mother organization. Without your support and guidance we could never have done it. We are grateful to our national media […]
