LTYM Seattle Venue and Show Date

by jenniferscharf on January 5, 2016

It’s a NEW YEAR, it’s a new you! Go ahead and put LTYM Seattle 2016 on your bucket list!

We are overjoyed to announce that our SECOND ANNUAL Seattle show will be held on Saturday May 7, 2016 at 1:30 PM at Town Hall Seattle.

Town Hall is Seattle’s premiere cultural center offering a broad range of local, national and international programs of music, humanities, and world cultural events. Our show this year is in the heart of the city and we can’t wait to share it with you!

We will be announcing audition dates on February 1st. While you are waiting, we wanted to give you some time to get your true stories of motherhood on paper or into the computer! Let’s get writing (or editing), shall we?

Are you sitting there thinking you could never write your story because you’re not a writer, or thinking you could never get up on a stage and tell your story because you’re not a professional speaker? Well we’re here to tell you otherwise! This is not a show just for professional speakers/writers (though we welcome all levels of experience). LTYM is about Motherhood and Motherhood is for EVERYONEYour story is unique. People want to hear it.  Even if you’ve never written or published a piece before!

Here’s what we’re looking for in Seattle:

1. IMPORTANT: Each piece must fall between 3-5 minutes when read aloud. This is approximately 2 pages, but will vary widely depending on content and speaking style. PLEASE PRACTICE BEFORE AUDITIONING and edit appropriately to achieve the desired time.

2. The theme of your piece must fall within the topic of “motherhood.” Any true story about any aspect of motherhood is great!

3. We always look for a diverse mix of stories. In addition, we look for funny essays, sad essays, and everything in between. You don’t have to be a mom to be in a LTYM show. You don’t even have to be a woman! We welcome all stories of motherhood from all people.

4. You must be the author and owner of all rights to your piece. (Totally fine if it’s been previously published as long as you retain the rights.)

5. You must be available during audition, rehearsal and show dates. Check back on 2/1 for date announcements.

We hope your wheels are turning! If you have any Seattle-based friends and family, please share this with them, too! The Emerald City is excited for it’s second season; let’s see what you’ve got, Seattle! Keep checking back here for our charity partner announcement, sponsor news, and all other things LTYM. Let’s go!

Please note that all cities have their own guidelines and if you’re interested in any other show you should check their local website for details, which will be updated according to their own schedules!
