A Very Official Conversation

by admin on January 11, 2013

This is our last reminder post about submitting your essay for Chicago’s 2013 LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER show! (We know; some of you are probably screaming, “It’s about time!”)

Here’s a conversation that Tracey and I really had. (Well, online. Still counts.) This is indicative of how we work. We get things done but don’t forget to enjoy ourselves along the way, and we hope that everyone who ends up on our 2013 cast (ooh! It’s getting exciting all up in here!) has a great time on this journey, too.

Melisa: Hey Tracey, what’s up?

Tracey: Not a lot, home girl. Hee hee. We are so funny when we write online!

Melisa: So, how are the submissions coming along?

Tracey: Funny you should ask! I was JUST thinking about the amazing caliber of submissions we’ve had this year. Chicago is so freaking talented!

Melisa: And we’re not even done yet…right?

Tracey: No way! We still have till the 15th of January to receive submissions.

Melisa: That’s THIS TUESDAY!!!

Tracey: You are CORRECT. (I can use caps lock, too).

Melisa: Mmm hmm.

Tracey: I hope the people who are nervous about submitting aren’t scared of us… I mean, we don’t bite. Often.

Melisa: Also, we’re fun. But we run a tight ship. I mean, I wouldn’t want people to think that we goof off all the time.

Tracey: Well, not ALL the time…

Melisa: I can’t wait for us to read through all of the submissions, together, so we can decide who should come in for auditions.

Tracey: Awwww…. You miss me, don’t you? And ME TOO ME TOO ME TOO!

Melisa: I’ll bring cupcakes!

Tracey: Oh dear. I guess I have to bring something, too? How about…. Um….

Melisa: Milk?

Tracey: If by “Milk” you mean “Boxed wine” then YES.

Melisa: Awesome. So where is the submission information again, in case somebody needs to find it?

Tracey: That’s a great question! Here ya go: Click Here for Submission Information

There’s still time! You’ve got until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, January 15 to send us your essay. We can’t wait to read it!
