Rehearsal was spectacular!

by brigid on April 26, 2016

We keep using words like AMAZING and SPECTACULAR to describe our cast this year. They truly are fabulous people with the most amazing stories to share.

We feel so lucky to have all of these people in our lives, and we can’t wait for them share their stories Saturday night. (Get your tickets here!)


The show would not be possible without our very generous hyper-local sponsors.

Today we would like to thank Learning Lab, Music City Lofts, Pathway Women’s Business Center, Align Wellness, and Americano Tapas & Bar.

These businesses are all locally owned and operated and we especially appreciate them supporting the Nashville storytelling community. Give them a shout and let them know you appreciate them too!

Meet the Cast: Rachel Giammarella

April 8, 2016

Rachel Giammarella was seven the first time she was called “a carpetbagger” and has taken the twenty years since to turn that initial insult into a title she clings to today. She came to Nashville this past July via Cleveland, Tennessee via Dalton, Georgia via Elmwood Park, New Jersey but still holds to the title of “Jersey girl”. It is that level of strength mixed with stubbornness that led her to audition for Listen to Your Mother. Despite not being a mother herself, Rachel is excited to share a different side of motherhood with the Listen to Your Mother audience. Although she has done a few theatrical performances in the past, Rachel has never done a performance where she’s reading an original piece.

Meet the Cast: Karla Chavez

April 7, 2016

Karla Chavez is a dreamer, believer, doer, and storyteller. She was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, and immigrated to Nashville, Tennessee, at the age of five. Her childhood dream was always to perform, though her dream was short lived in her 8th grade theatre production of the Wizard of Oz. After a 13 year hiatus, she is ecstatic to return. College seemed impossible for Karla. However thanks to community organizations like T.I.R.R.C., a great support system of family and friends, she accomplished her biggest dream yet. Karla now holds an A.S. degree from Volunteer State Community College and a B.A. degree in Public Relations from Lipscomb University. She spends her weekdays in college recruitment and weekends capturing stories through natural light photography. Her specialty? Let’s just say she is known as the puppy whisperer. The louder the bark, the better the shot. She is passionate about servant leadership, her Nashville community, and hot chicken. […]
