ltym2016

Nervous, excited, (warm!) prepared, confident and about to tell your story to the kindest, most receptive audience in town at the Bing Crosby Theater.

Listen To Your Mother is a community oriented celebration of the beauty, the heartbreak, the trials and triumphs that are motherhood.  Directed and produced in Spokane by local moms Stacey Conner and Elise Raimi, LTYM Spokane is part of a national series of performances which is celebrating it’s grand finale year with performances in 32 cities across the country.You do not have to be a mother, a writer or a performer to participate; you just need a story about motherhood or mothering.  We encourage everyone to audition – the more varied the backgrounds, experiences and stories we can tell on stage the better!

All the details are below so check ’em out and email us to reserve your audition space, to get more information or for general encouragement with your decision to audition.  We can’t wait to hear your story.

  • To schedule a March 4th audition, email listentoyourmotherspokane@gmail.com.
    • Please include your name and your availability for an appointment. (Please also email us with questions or if you are in need of encouragement!)
  • Pieces should be five minutes or less when read aloud.
  • No previous stage experience is necessary.
  • Commitment for cast members includes two group read-throughs in April, a pre-performance run-through at the Bing Crosby Theater and one 7:00 p.m. performance on Mother’s Day.
  • If you are cast,it will be to read the work auditioned.
  • People of all ages, types, and backgrounds and writers of all experience-levels are encouraged to audition.
  • Although mothers are welcome, you need not be a mother: we encourage diverse perspectives on the subject of mothers or mothering.
  • Previously published work accepted as long as the author retains full rights or has express permission to read the work for this event.
  • Auditions are closed – only you, Stacey and Elise.  The environment is friendly, welcoming, accepting and affirmative.

We would love to listen to your words.

LTYM Spokane 2017!

by Elise on October 6, 2016

How we track the passing of our days and years says a lot about what one holds important at a given point in time. What grade you were in, which dumpy apartment you called home in college or early work life, the number of years in a profession, the age of your children or, if you are lucky enough to live in a city with a Listen To Your Mother Show, number of show years.  We in Spokane are STILL amazed that we get to count our years using the last marker and are thrilled to announce the beginning of the 2017 season – our SEVENTH in Spokane!  Check out our snazzy video to get excited about auditioning and to feel all the feels from last year’s amazing shows.2017videopromoltym

We will be holding auditions for the Spokane show in mid to late February.  Email us at listentoyourmotherspokane@gmail.com to make sure you are the first to get the date announcement.  To stay current on everything LTYM sign up for our National Newsletter and follow us on Twitter @LTYMShow and Facebook.

A huge final thank you goes out to our sponsors — Rockwood Health Systems, Hatch, Little Nutmeg Productions, Spokane Community Colleges, and Spark.  We can not do this without them. See you next year!   by

Oh, What a Night!

May 27, 2016

The only downside to being the last in a 41-city line up of Listen To Your Mother Shows is that by the time you are ready to write your wrap-up post everything has already been said.  Essays have been gushed over, speakers and sponsors and causes have been thanked, and rave reviews have poured in from all over the country.  As I sit at the keyboard trying to come up with an original way to write about the amazing night that was the 6th LTYM Spokane show it strikes me that the beauty of this project lies in the realization that although everything has already been said it held, it holds, equally true for our show in Spokane. And what a show it was: The theater filled, the slide show played, and we gathered the cast and headed up to the stage.  As we waited for the lights to dim cast members squeezed each other’s hands, smiled […]

Spokane Sponsor Rockwood Health System

April 28, 2016

LTYM Spokane is so grateful to have Rockwood Health System as a local sponsor for a second year.  Rockwood Health System is a partnership of Deaconess Hospital, Rockwood Clinic, and Valley Hospital, working together to serve and care for patients across the Inland Northwest.  With over 4000 employees and physicians, two hospitals, and 12 primary clinical locations providing concentrated medical and urgent care services, Rockwood Health Systems is uniquely able to offer exceptional health care and medical services to their patients. We are thrilled to be working closely with Nurse Zibby, one of Deaconess Hospital’s labor and delivery nurses, a LTYM Spokane alumni, and an educator on all things childbirth and babies.  Zibby teaches many of the childbirth and newborn support classes offered at Deaconess, often at no cost to the community, including free breastfeeding classes, Daddy 101, childbirth classes, and classes on newborn care. You can find more about classes with Nurse Zibby at Deaconess […]
