What is Listen To Your Mother?

LTYM is a live stage show that features a cast of women and men reading stories that center around motherhood. These stories are woven together to create a show that is more powerful than you can imagine. From sweet tales, heart wrenching narratives, uplifting anecdotes to hysterical accounts, they all have a place in LTYM and they all deserve to have a microphone in Pittsburgh’s first show.

This year 39 cities across the country will hold their own unique LTYM shows. We are honored and thrilled to add Pittsburgh to this national movement.

These stories will make you laugh, cry, and say over and over “Yes, me too!” Take some time to watch the fantastic stories from past shows in other cities here.

Most LTYM cast members are not professional writers or have any stage experience.  You just need to have a story to tell!

2015 is YOUR year to tell your story about all things motherhood.

Here are some suggestions for your story submission:

  • Your story should be 4-6 minutes long.  Write your piece, read it aloud, time yourself, and edit if necessary.
  • Your story’s theme is motherhood and needs to center around this. Here’s the thing, you don’t have to be a mother to write about motherhood. Write about your experiences as a mother, experiences with your own mother, or the mother figure in your life. Motherhood is a universal theme. Run with this because we can’t wait to hear your story!
  • Your story must be original. You need to be the author and owner of your story.
  • Watch and listen to some of the past stories from the Listen To Your Mother YouTube Channel. They are ALL amazing.

 

  •  Auditions will be held by appointment only on Saturday, January 31, Sunday, February 1, and Saturday, February 14 (place TBD soon)
