Meet Some of Our Cast!

by Margaret on April 2, 2015

We are so excited to introduce you to our cast! We’ve got some seasoned bloggers and some first time writers and they all have wonderful stories to share with you. So here’s our first glimpse of the cast. More to come!

Gabrielle Magers

Gabby is the eternal child and is quite shocked when someone ensues that she may actually be categorized as an adult. Although she has yet to jump in to the wild world of parenthood she feels as though she is racking up tons of experience with her 5 nieces and nephews and their shenanigans. Gabby was a quiet, observant child who would journal about everything and everyone around her. And now as an "adult" she finds real life still makes for the best writing.

Darlene Guitierrez

Darlene Gutierrez has lived in Plumas County for 25 years. She is an aspiring author and has written stories and essays on and off for the past 40 years. She is determined that 2015 will be the year she truly makes a go of it. The LTYM event is her first success in this endeavor. She is the mother of two grown sons and has two young granddaughters. She is also an avid woodworker, gardener, gourmet cook, and a caregiver

Melinda Rother

My name is Melinda Rother – I was lucky enough to be born and raised in Quincy.  I went to college in Sacramento, lived in Reno a short time, but came back to Quincy to raise my sons.   I am in my 18th year of being the Assistant Clerk-Recorder-Registrar of Voters for Plumas County.  I am not a writer; this is my first attempt at it.  I wrote from my heart because I was talking about one of my favorite subjects; my boys.   I am married to my best friend and we enjoy year around outdoor activities, such as snowmobiling, wave running and traveling in our RV.   I am very happy to be a part of this project.

Rebecca Deemer, sitting by her visiting from Maine mother, listening to a birth story, at last years Listen to Your Mother show dared herself to write a story for this years show...and...she did it!

Our First Rehearsal

by Margaret on March 26, 2015

LTYM Plumas County is probably the smallest show in the country. And by that I mean, we live in a tiny rural area– a county with less than 20,000 people in it. It is truly one of those places where everybody knows everybody. In Quincy, CA where the LTYM show takes place, we have less than 6000 people.

But what a remarkable find! We gathered 11 women cast members & directors and one photographer (Joanne Burgueno) on a Sunday afternoon at Plumas Arts for our first rehearsal.  Not everyone knew each other! Best of all, no one had ever heard the other one’s story before.  See in photos how we came together.

Linda and JenniferLinda and Jennfier listening intently.

IMGP5864 Melinda’s laughter.IMGP5892 (1) Marcy’s can so relate with Tiffiney’s hilarious tribute to trying to put toddlers to bed.  Circling up for the First ReadIsn’t our meeting place beautiful? Thank you, Plumas Arts, for letting us meet in the gallery.
