We’ll email you back with your appointment time and the appointment location.

Saturday, May 6 at 6:00PM at The Broadway Presbyterian Church

And our two rehearsals on …

March 12 and April 20 (rehearsal times TBA)

All looks good?


Some other things to keep in mind as you prepare…

You don8699625482_071f36235a_k’t have to be a mom or even a WOMAN to participate.

Your piece MUST have motherhood as the central theme, and the words must be your own.

Your piece can be anywhere from 3-5 minutes in length.

You do not have to memorize your piece. (Not even for the show.)

You do not need to have professional writing or stage experience to audition.

We are looking for the stories only you can tell. (The best way to understand what makes a great Listen to Your Mother piece is to check out LTYM’s YouTube channel with over a thousand videos from past shows across the country.)

We will have tasty snacks for you.

We are beyond excited to hear your story!

Be sure to check back here for more exciting announcements about our choice of charitable organization, local sponsors, and MORE!  

Let’s do this!

Our best,

Amy, Kizz & Barbara

We absolutely loved our experience at the Broadway Presbyterian. The church is all at once, grand and theatrical, and intimate and warm. Truly the perfect space for our performers to take to the stage, revealing themselves, their lives, and their personal stories about motherhood.

LTYM NYC auditions are right around the corner!

It won’t be long now until we announce audition information, so be sure to check back here later this month.

Or to receive information about auditions (or sponsorship opportunities, and charity partnerships), send an email to listentoyourmothernyc@gmail.com and ask to be added to our mailing list. (We do not share information with 3rd parties.)

What to do right now?

Write your story! Check out our writing advice.

And please, forward this post to your circle of family, friends and writing groups to help us get the word out about our upcoming auditions.

Until then…

Have a safe and joyous New Year.

We’ll see you soon!
Amy, Kizz & Barbara

We’re reaching out to you during this Post-Thanksgiving, Pre-Holiday Season because let’s face it, there’s nothing that stirs up childhood recollections and motherhood memories quite like a family gathering. So now really is the perfect time to begin writing your audition piece for the 2017 Listen To Your Mother NYC show. Good-for-the-soul banter is good for writing too. Begin by just jotting down your ideas, or writing out word-for-word that often-told hilarious (or poignant, or heartbreaking) story that captures your specific motherhood moment. Remember, we’re not looking for your thoughts on Motherhood, the institution—we’re looking for the story of your Tuesday morning. We’re looking for the stories only you can tell. Need more inspiration? Check out these motherhood-inspired writing prompts and our video library of past Listen To Your Mother performances. Other things to keep in mind as you write… That your story is yours. (At Listen To Your Mother, you retain all […]
