Men can audition too!

*Audition signups for the Charleston Production of Listen To Your Mother are now closed.

Today’s post is a reminder that you don’t have to be a mom to audition! Take it from our 2014 cast member, Sean Scapellato. At the first rehearsal, it was evident that he fit right in.

In our private Facebook group for cast members, we often began our messages with, “Hey ladies, and Sean!” He was definitely outnumbered. But, Sean says being a part of Charleston’s Listen To Your Mother show was “the highlight of his year”, something he’ll remember for a long time.

“It was so nice to share and swap such powerful stories with strangers who now feel like friends.” ~Sean Scapellato

Sean goes on to say, “At some point in 2015, I’m going to need another photo of myself surrounded by a pack of hot women.”

Having Sean in the show added a necessary depth to our collective stories. Motherhood stories aren’t exclusive to women or people who have children or even to people who have moms. Sean’s willingness to be the lone male face on a stage full of women reminds us that all of us have something to share.
