Audition Time!

by KeAnne on January 9, 2017


Everything you need to know to audition for the 2017 Listen to Your Mother: Raleigh-Durham!

Marty and I are excited to announce auditions for the 5th and final Listen to Your Mother:Raleigh-Durham show!  We know this grand finale show will be as amazing as the prior four have been, but we need YOU to help make it so!

Auditions will be held February 4, 5 and 6, 2017.  You can sign up for a spot here.

You will be doing a reading, so come prepared with one piece chosen ahead of time and bring two printed copies for us.  While we aren’t looking for perfect delivery, it will help (your nerves if nothing else!) if you practice reading it aloud ahead of time.  More tips:

  • Stories should be no more than 5 minutes long (please time yourself before auditioning)
  • We are looking for stories about mothers and/or motherhood: the highs, the lows, the hysterical, the sweet, the tragic and everything in between
  • If you need more information on the kinds of stories we are looking for, check out past stories on the LTYM YouTube channel and 2016’s Raleigh-Durham stories.

We plan to announce the cast by February 10, 2017.  The show will be held May 5 at 7:30 at Jones Auditorium on the campus of Meredith College.  In addition to the show on May 5, there will be 3 mandatory read-throughs (in February, March and April) and a tech rehearsal on May 3.

We know you have stories, and we want to hear them!  If you have questions, please email us at
