Decisions, decisions…

by Margaret on February 3, 2017

IMG_0572Hi. This is me. Margaret. Right before I headed out to Quincy and the Main Street Lounge which proprietor Karen Powell lent me to audition potential LTYM cast members for our swan song show. I love the Main Street Lounge in Quincy—it’s just so cool to have a business owner so enthusiastic about the arts.

Anyhow…my co-director Tina Terrazas…seen here (yeah I know, we forgot to take photos).

IMGP7305and I got to listen to some very sweet stories. It’s been since 2015 since we’ve had a show so I felt a little rusty but as soon as I heard the first story I remembered just why we’re doing this. We haven’t made final decisions yet but decided on a good division of labor–I will be speaking to cast members about editing and Tina will be giving suggestions on stage presence. Putting our collective skills to work. We will be making our decisions this coming weekend.

I’m super excited for the season to start!

What Time is It? Audition Time!

by Margaret on January 9, 2017

Listen to Your Mother comes back to Plumas County one last time and auditions to read a personal essay about motherhood and mothers takes place Jan. 27 in Greenville and Jan. 28 in Quincy.
Auditions will get underway for this year’s Plumas County LTYM show at the end of January. The show will take place at the Town Hall Theatre on May 2 at 7 p.m. There will be two rehearsals prior to May 2.
This year’s non-profit recipient is Mountain Passages’ Girls Rite program–they were one of our recipients in the past and could really use help sustaining their programs for all our communities.
Interested potential readers should email their essays and interest to writerchickmama@gmail.com for an audition time in either Greenville or Quincy. Essays should be no longer than 800 words and LTYM Plumas should be in the subject line.
We’ve heard so many comments over the last year about people having stories to tell! Now’s the time to tell them.
This will be the last Listen to Your Mother Show in Plumas County–the big finale! Let’s have a whole lot of fun and get those stories out there!

LTYM Plumas County ONE MORE TIME 2017

October 13, 2016

I am pleased to announce that Listen to Your Mother is coming back to Plumas County on May 2nd at the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy. As I was alerting Plumas LTYM alumni to this decision I noticed something—we started in 2013. Some of us have moved away. Some of us now have grown children. There’s so many new things to say, new observations to make. My goodness. People are already coming up to me telling me they’re working on their essays. We so needed 2016 as time off and I’m glad we took it. But I’m super happy that as the national LTYM does one more year that we are part of it once again. And some things are already in place! Like we already have May 2nd booked at Town Hall Theatre and  once again we will be supporting Women’s Mountain Passages GIRLS RITE program which provides outstanding after school mentoring […]

We are Awesome and Amazing!

May 7, 2015

Last Thursday this time? I was running around like the proverbial chicken sans head.  Along with Providence, we were the first show in the LTYM 2015 season.  I haven’t really processed it all even though it’s been a fully week tonight. I can tell you this though. This sharing of stories is a life altering thing. And a community altering thing. This was our third year hosting LTYM in our tiny rural mountain community where trees still outnumber people. You know you made an impact when the next morning people are talking about the show on the street and other people you know come up to you and tell you they heard how great your show was. You know storytelling is powerful when audience members corner you in the bank, in the grocery store, in the cafeteria at work and tell you that they too have stories and they are writing them down now […]
