Meet the 2017 Cast of Listen to Your Mother San Antonio (Part 1)

by jillr on April 1, 2017

Listen to Your Mother San Antonio announced it’s 2017 cast last month. Today, we’re going to introduce you to three of the readers that will be sharing their stories on May 13th at the Carver Community Cultural Center.

Meet the San Antonio Cast 1a

 

As you can see from their biographies, they’re diverse and accomplished. Their stories are powerful, heartwarming, and entertaining. We can’t wait to share them with you.

If you’re not clear on what exactly Listen to Your Mother is, it’s a 90-minute stage show that takes you on a well-crafted journey that celebrates and validates mothering through giving voice to motherhood–in all its complexity, diversity, and humor.

LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER aims to support motherhood creatively through artistic expression, and financially through contributions to non-profit organizations supporting families in need. Each LTYM show donates a minimum of 10% of ticket proceeds to a local cause, as well as providing the cause awareness/fund-raising opportunities. Our 2017 show is pleased to support Clarity Child Guidance Center of San Antonio.

This is the first in a series of posts that introduces our 2017 San Antonio Cast.

Miranda Divett González

Miranda

Miranda Divett González is a proud daughter of the desert Southwest.She loves living in San Antonio but wears so many New Mexico t-shirts that her friends wonder if she is on the payroll at the NM Tourism Department. She met her husband at BYU-Idaho while completing her degree in English and Spanish Education.  They are raising three bilingual children.

Miranda got her writing start in corporate blogging  but soon realized that her true passion was writing weird short stories and nonfiction that makes people cry. She left her job as a web content writer and translator to teach college English online and focus her energy on creative writing. You can follow her on Twitter here.

Kevin Ramos

Kevin

Kevin Ramos is a Fine Arts Theater Major who studied at University of Washington In Seattle and Mason Gross School of the Arts (New Brunswick, NJ), as a child growing up in the absolutely NOT tree lined, inner city streets of Passaic, NJ, he aspired to be either the next Oscar Wilde, the next Peter O’Toole or the next Shelly Long (true!).

In addition to several short stories and essays, he has written and published a novel, loosely based on his childhood, called The Chronicles of Kevantra McSwain, about a teenage Drag Queen with super powers. Life, love and adventure have brought him from the big city of NYC all the way to San Antonio Texas where he lives now close to his father and is embarking on an exciting new chapter in his life.

Laurel Stevens

Laurel1

Laurel Stevens graduated from Wheaton College in Illinois with a Bachelors in Elementary Education. After teaching in Vienna, Austria for two years she moved back “home” to Houston where she met a quiet engineer who introduced her to Michigan dried cherries, rock climbing, and a wedding ring. While pregnant with their first child and teaching 3rd grade, she decided after lining everyone up to go to the restroom yet again that she would rather homeschool, and so she did.  Thirteen years later she is mother to two, a 4th grader and an 8th grader, whose favorite subjects are history and science.

Her most productive writing years were the two the family spent in Germany for her engineer husband’s job.  There the kids were in school, and Laurel needed a way to cope with all the cultural changes and new situations.  Blogging became her lifeline home.  Now back in the The Woodlands, Texas she’s a sporadic blogger (stevensfamily3.blogspot.com), spending more time helping her children on their own writing, leading book clubs with other homeschoolers, or tutoring children at a local community center.

Tickets are on sale now!  Advance tickets are $15, $20.00 at the door on show day.

All tickets purchased online will incur Ticketmaster fees. You can purchase no-fee tickets at the Carver Community Cultural Center’s box office from 8-5 Monday through Friday, 226 North Hackberry, San Antonio TX 78202
