Announcing LTYM Milwaukee’s Third Season!

by Alexandra on November 19, 2014

Listen To Your Mother Milwaukee is excited to be back for its third season! Since our first show in 2013, we’ve shared 25 stories with our local community, and we are thrilled when we think about the stories we’ll be sharing in 2015!

You can watch Ann Imig, the founder and national director of LTYM, officially kick off our 2015 season with 29 returning cities and 10 new cities here.

Jennifer Gaskell and I are returning as the producers and directors of LTYM Milwaukee, and we have a fantastic announcement. Something that speaks to the power of Listen To Your Mother shows. We have added a third member to LTYM Milwaukee. From our original cast of Milwaukee’s inaugural show, we joyfully introduce Rochelle Fritsch as part of our production team.

I remember being in the Madison show five years ago. The experience of sharing my truth before an audience was something I wanted to bring to Milwaukee. To now see Rochelle wanting to provide that same opportunity to others gives us goose bumps.

We will be updating with city news here, so sign up for our monthly newsletter and follow us on Facebook and twitter. Check back here often for audition announcements, venue, date and ticket sale information.

Finally, Thank you, Milwaukee, for being the heart behind all we do to build community through sharing our stories! We’ll be back next week to tell you more about Rochelle, and you’ll quickly see why she is a stellar addition to our Milwaukee team.

What a Show, Listen To Your Mother Milwaukee!

May 28, 2014

Our Milwaukee Listen To Your Mother Show happened exactly one month ago today, and not a day has passed since then that the LTYM production team hasn’t thought about our readers, our audience, our sponsors and our Milwaukee community! Each of our cast members read with a passion and love for their story, that it was hard to believe that for many, this was their first time on stage. After our show, many in the audience said to me, “I can’t believe some of them had never done this before!” I think of Sini, and how she set the tone for our show: this is true confession time and how many in the audience were nodding their heads yes to Sini’s story of how Daddy gets the best of the kids. Sini’s natural spot-on delivery made us all feel as if she were whispering to us over coffee. I think of Colleen, finding the beautiful in […]

Listen To Your Mother Milwaukee is Two Seasons Strong!

May 22, 2014

There are a lot of ways to bring community together. People supporting one other, businesses through generous sponsorship that enable an event to happen, family and friends being in the audience to cheer their loved ones on, and those who bravely share who they are as they read their words, believing in the power of their voice. LTYM shows donates ten percent of gross ticket sales to a local charity/cause. So much of the magic of LTYM is the transparency and trust that work to bring a community together – through the process that together, we are stronger. Listen To Your Mother shows are a community building event that nail all of the above square on the head, bulls-eye right to the target. Everyone involved in a LTYM show whether as reader, producer, director, sponsor, audience member, or representative of our local cause — all are part of the process. Each person essential and each person […]

Milwaukee’s Second Annual Listen To Your Mother Show Sponsor Thank You!

May 1, 2014

  Listen To Your Mother Milwaukee celebrated its 2nd annual LTYM show this past Sunday, April 27. Our show brought together 10 community voices, each on stage to read their stories that represented motherhood in all its stages, seasons, and graces. Our audience clapped, laughed, and cheered for a wonderfully long time. Our community, our cast, and our corner of the world was made both larger and smaller, as well as a better place, through hearing our cast’s stories. We heard from people we would never have otherwise met. We knew our show would be magic, and it was! The pride, unity, love, and connection that our cast felt for each other, and the same feelings going out to our audience, was something we knew our cast would come to see for themselves. LTYM Milwaukee wants to thank our national and local sponsors for what their generous support has allowed, and that is a place […]
