Introducing LTYM: Charleston’s 2017 Cast!

by Anna Hartman on February 24, 2017


This year, this process feels bittersweet. Knowing that we won’t be returning to Listen To Your Mother as a production team or even with the same methodology next year, has made our Charleston team cling tightly to every last audition and every story that comes to us, because, well, each one truly is one of the last. That’s the bitter.

But the stories have come, and they are amazing and filled with all funny, touching, tears, and love. And that’s the sweet.

We couldn’t have asked for a better round of stories to finish up the 4 years that Listen To Your Mother has graced the stage in our fair city.

There’s Still Time to Audition!

by Anna Hartman on February 6, 2017


There’s still time to sign up to audition for this year’s Listen to Your Mother: Charleston!

Click here! 

Last week, I sat in the first round of auditions with my fellow LTYM production time. In between beautiful stories of love, tears, humanity, and amazing, we got a little nostalgic. You see, this year will be the last time we come together for this project. LTYM is changing and growing, and we’ve committed to making this year our Grand Finale!

It feels important! Grand! Exciting! A little sad! And very beautiful!

Because we want to prolong the emotion and experience, and (mostly) because we want YOU to be a part of Listen to Your Mother: Charleston if you want to be. We’ve added an extra day onto our auditions. So there’s time!

Share your motherhood story! And share in this experience that has changed my life and filled me with such love.

Auditions will be Wednesday, February 15 at 6p.m.

Head over to to save your space right now! 

And if you’re looking for a little more information about what we are looking for, read this post. 

We can’t wait to hear your words.
