Meet the cast!

The 2017 LTYM Boulder Show

by stephaniesprenger on May 5, 2017

Last Saturday, April 29th was the 5th Listen To Your Mother Boulder show, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the incredible audience who turned out to support us. Despite snowy weather (so typical of Colorado in the springtime!), the house was packed with 575 people! The energy and warmth we felt from the audience was palpable and encouraging– what a fantastic, supportive group! We are thrilled to have some beautiful photos from the evening to share with you, thanks to our amazing photographer Liv of Tiny Dragon Photography!

And of course, one of the most special parts of Listen To Your Mother Boulder is the relationships formed: there’s just nothing like it.

EFAA: Our LTYM Boulder 2017 Cause

April 20, 2017

We are honored to announce that, for the fourth year in a row, 10% of Boulder’s Listen To Your Mother Show ticket sales will benefit our local Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA)! Many people in the community of Boulder are not aware that poverty exists here. According to EFAA, 50% of Boulder County homeless are families with children (really!) and more than 30% of Boulder County children live under or near the federal poverty line. There are at least 1,386 homeless school children registered in Boulder County schools. EFAA serves about 2,300 children annually though its programs. For nearly 100 years EFAA has helped families, seniors and people with disabilities whose immediate needs for food, housing and other basic necessities cannot adequately be met by other means, and supports their efforts toward financial stability and self-sufficiency. EFAA operates 54 emergency and transitional shelter units, provides food, rent assistance, utilities assistance, furniture, and supports clients through casework, education and advocacy.  […]

First Rehearsal For Listen To Your Mother Boulder 2017

March 21, 2017

The cast of Listen To Your Mother Boulder 2017 met for our first rehearsal this week, and I have a confession: I love the first read-through almost as much as I love the show itself. There is just nothing like it; it’s downright magical. It is so thrilling to finally get the cast all together to meet one another, witness the diverse, powerful, beautiful storytelling, and get the “big picture” of the show. We laughed, we cried, we took selfies . . . well, we tried. (We almost got everyone in one shot!) After listening to the show from start to finish, we can’t say it enough: You do NOT want to miss these stories! From twin mishaps to aging parents, from the joys and woes of parenting young kids to the achingly complex mother-daughter relationship, from embarrassing your mom in public to the horror of a sleepover with a bunch of 3rd graders, […]
