Welcome to #LTYM Plumas County!

Final Photos and Final Thoughts

by Margaret on June 19, 2017

It’s been nearly a month since our LTYM Show Plumas County had its brief tenure across the stage at the West End Theatre. We were very low key this year but we also feel it may have been our best year yet. Our portraits from our photographer are not quite back yet but in the meantime we have these snapshots to consider.

And then in no time at all –our wonderful stories were done. Our 3/4ths sold out audiences had gone home. People asked about next year. When can we do this again?! Co-director Tina Terrazas and I are not planning on another round of LTYM, but we will host a storytelling event of some kind.

IMG_1745 (1)My favorite photo of the day: Hannah Hepner listening intently to other LTYMers read their stories. That is what we’re here for.

We’ll have photos eventually back from our photographer who is having as busy a season as we are. But until then there are these few photos which also tell the back stage story of our little show.

A word for our sponsors…

by Margaret on June 11, 2017

IMG_1746We finally have a wee bit of time to wrap up and catch up with our Listen to Your Mother Show news…

We had a lovely just lovely array of sponsors this year for the show. Two alumni and their businesses contributed Pat Bradley, C. Hom gave to the show and has a homeopathy practice in Greenville but really serves clients beyond Greenville to various areas of Northern California. And Marcy DeMartile of DeMartile automotive in Quincy. Thank you, ladies for your support!

Various small businesses  in Plumas County also gave us a bit of swag. Crescent Country, Mohawk Trading Co., and Sterling Sage of Indian Valley all gave us nifty self-care treats as well as KakeCo in Quincy. And our new production company PACHUCA PRODUCTIONS!

Palmaz Vineyard of Napa set us up backstage with some lovely wines from their vineyard to quell our pre-show jitters (no more than one glass before the show, ladies).

Thank you to all the businesses that supported our efforts.

Also those that helped us pre-show day: Roundhouse Council, Plumas Arts, and West End Theatre.

Couldn’t have done it without you guys!

LTYM Plumas County Sports Some Change Ups

March 25, 2017

When you are a veteran of a show like this, you kind of start to take things for granted–or at least schedules and how long it will take to organize and where your resources are and of course where your show will take place. Because we’ve done this before! But this year we hit a snag. Our tiny area lays low for much of the year but spring is a busy time in the mountains–everyone scrounges around with events. So we’re changing venues to THE WEST END THEATRE in Quincy! We’ve worked with them before on a variety of events and are excited to be coming back to the theatre. And we’re moving our date to May 20 at 7 pm! Check out the space below: West End Theatre!     by
