Listen to Your Mother is Back, Charleston!

by Anna Hartman on November 15, 2015

Intro-Post-11.15 550pxI’m thrilled, over-the-moon, stomach-clenched ecstatic to announce that Listen to Your Mother will return to Charleston in 2016!

Next year’s show marks the third year that local writers will stand on stage and read their own powerful words about their experiences with Motherhood. In past years words have dripped with love, hung heavy with emotion, rocked the audience’s seats, and left lasting impressions.

The 2016 show promises to hold the same power and impact.

Mark your calendars now for the May 1 show at Sottile Theatre on the College of Charleston campus. 

I’m Anna Hartman, and I’m working with the most amazing group of women in Rebecca Finley, Jennifer Buddin, and Philicia Baugh, to bring the show back and make it a part of Charleston’s springtime and your Mother’s Day traditions.

Follow Listen to Your Mother on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on all the show news from across the country. Or check back here to learn about the amazing show we are building in Charleston.

I’ll share updates about auditions and our growing show family. And of course, feel free to email me if you have any questions or just want to chat in the meantime!

That’s a wrap, Charleston!

May 21, 2015

Charleston’s 2015 Listen To Your Mother show was amazing. We even made the front page of The Post and Courier on Mother’s Day. As the director and the emcee, I was able to sit on the stage and watch each cast member—under the glow of the spotlight—read their story and feel it like never before. The stories ranged from childbirth, teen pregnancy, adoption, alcoholism, suicide, and the day-to-day challenges of being a mom. Some were laugh out loud funny. Through it all, the depth of motherhood and how it shapes us hit home. The audience laughed, cried and said, “Me too.” We had 300+ in attendance at Charleston Music Hall and here’s what one of them had to say: “It was a great collective expression of souls intertwined, yet liberated and free; of struggles that have made people stronger and better. We loved the stories….” Cast member Tanya Robinson said her castmates provided “a safe haven of compassion, […]

Local Sponsor Spotlight: Jody Mack Photography

April 29, 2015

I can’t believe that we are here, three days away from Charleston’s 2015 Listen To Your Mother show. In a recent conversation with LTYM Founder Ann Imig, she noted how a local show is like a wedding. All this prep, for months and months, and then poof! it’s over. That’s why we’re so grateful to have Jody Mack Photography as a returning local sponsor for this year’s Listen To Your Mother show. As our show day photographer, she’ll capture the moments that we’ll always remember.   Jody is a lifestyle newborn, child and family photographer serving Charleston and Mount Pleasant. As the mom of three young girls, she enjoys capturing candid moments and all that is unique and beautiful about every individual.     Jody’s favorite mantra – that holds true in many areas of life – is that the “the best moments are REAL moments,” and Jody captures those real and beautiful moments each […]
