The Biggest Season Yet!

by elaine on November 18, 2014

“Now that I am grown, I realize that my mom was the wisest woman I knew.  I regret that I never told her.” – Dolores Mitchell

 

That is just one quote from twelve different, heart-tugging, amazing stories told last May in The Jefferson Theater in Beaumont, Texas.

Jennifer and I, along with the creator of the show, Ann Imig, are thrilled to announce that we will be c0-producing and directing another show this coming May 2015!

 

And! AND!  This years shows span the country with 39 total cities, including 10 new cities.  WOW!

 

Now that we are veterans (WHEE!) we are so excited to hear even more stories of motherhood and bring another show to fruition, so please stay tuned for submission and audition information.

Grateful

May 29, 2014

Please welcome Kelley Nettles, one of the cast members of LTYM, Southeast TX 2014 and her guest post about her experience with the show.  You can also find Kelley at her blog, Kelley’s Breakroom!   There are many reasons that I am so grateful to Jennifer Williams and Elaine Alguire, the two women behind the production of the Listen To Your Mother Show in Southeast Texas.  However, the primary reason  I am grateful is because they allowed me to connect with people across many different walks of life over one unifying, beautiful thing- motherhood.   Motherhood was something that I thought I may never know personally. Both of my boys were not easy to come by. There were many years I thought that I would never, ever have children. There were many years that my heart hurt over never having a baby of my own. I went through many peaks and valleys throughout that time. […]

It’s a Listen To Your Mother Thing

May 8, 2014

Here is a guest post from our cast member, Candy Mickels Mejia on her experience the day of the show…      It had been ten years since I’d been on a stage. Longer maybe. So much of my life has happened between then and now it’s hard to say exactly how much time has transpired. I’ve experienced some of the biggest, most important moments in my life since my last stage appearance — which is why I knew participating in Listen to Your Mother was something I had to try to do. Getting to the theatre on that Sunday was the easiest part of the day, despite living two hours from the venue and hitching a ride with a fellow cast mate so my husband could take my (DVD player equipped) car to get himself and my daughters to the show later that day. Kelley and I arrived just as everyone else […]

Rehearsal Magic

April 27, 2014

On Saturday I drove to Beaumont for our 2nd and final rehearsal. I was more nervous than the first time for a couple of reasons but I was also excited to see our cast again and to hear their stories again. Jennifer brought fresh baked chocolate chips cookies, per my request, so that made it extra awesome! What happened on Saturday was this:  Jennifer and I truly realized how well our twelve stories weave together and just fit. We have been told of the magic that can and most likely WILL happen with each LTYM show by the veterans but of course you cannot really know it until you experience it yourself.  Well folks, I experienced it on Saturday.  I had chills and tears and laughs and this was JUST at the little library where we held the rehearsal.  I can ONLY imagine how it’s all going to feel on Sunday when were […]
