LTYM: Madison Announces Auditions for our 6th annual Mother’s Day Listen to Your Mother show!
Our mothers shape our lives from the day we are born. For some of us, we become mothers ourselves, and receive the power, grace and courage to begin the stories that will shape our own kids’ lives. We laugh, cry, fight, hug, and try to slow down time (or speed it up, depending on the day). As mothers, daughters, fathers and sons, we hold on to the moments that stick to our sides and live on in those powerful stories we retell. Where does your motherhood story begin? Share it with us!
LTYM: Madison welcomes your stories and invites you to audition and share your original soulful, insightful, humorous or heartwarming story about motherhood in all its forms.
You don’t have to be a mother to audition, you don’t have to be a writer or a performer.
LTYM welcomes everyone with a story to tell to our auditions; people of every ability, age, gender, ethnicity and race, so long as you bring along that powerful story with motherhood at the center.
