Listen To Your Mother (LTYM) not only gives writers a unique opportunity to take their motherhood stories from the “page to the stage,” our 39 shows across the country also  give back to their own communities. In fact, since 2010 when LTYM was founded by Ann Imig, in Madison Wisconsin, we have expanded our cities and raised more than $50,000 for all local charities combined. And we’re just beginning!

Here in St. Louis, we’re doing our part to raise money and awareness for important causes that benefit women and families. In 2013, we partnered with Connections To Success and last year our cause was Girls In The Know. In 2015, we are proud to join efforts with Family Resource Center (FRC) as our 2015 non-profit organization.

LTYM 2015–Bigger Than Ever!

by Ellie on November 13, 2014

Believe it or not, the holidays are around the corner, and you know what that means…It’s the kickoff to 2015 LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER (LTYM) season! Betcha thought I was gonna say it’s almost the season to eat too much pumpkin pie, drink too much spiked eggnog, and spend too much money on your kids’ wish lists. Well, that too. 

Lask week, Founder Ann Imig made an announcement on our national website about how big of an impact we’ve made on giving a voice to motherhood. Next year, we have 29 returning cities and 10 new cities giving motherhood the microphone–that’s so exciting! And we want YOU to be a part of the incredible LTYM experience!

Check this out–click on the photo to view our latest YouTube video!

In St. Louis, this will be our THIRD annual show, and we promise to give our Gateway City the best platform to tell your story that will reach people near and far, both live on stage and in social media. And we know you’ve got a story to tell!

So, it’s time to put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, and start writing! Your story is just that, YOUR unique story. It can be funny, sad, inspirational, powerful…as long as your words pull at the heartstrings and covers some aspect of motherhood (we want to hear from the men, too!)

Stay tuned for more info on submissions, auditions, and all that good stuff after the holidays. Meanwhile, enjoy the leftover turkey, homemade fudge, and long return lines at the mall.

And  one more thing…when you need a break from it all, join us on Twitter and Facebook!

Love & Knishes,

Ellie, Laura & Naomi

It’s A Wrap, St. Louis!

May 13, 2014

Last Saturday, the day before Mother’s Day, LTYM STL took the stage for the second year in a row at St. Luke’s, and we gave it our all. We shared our stories about our moms, ourselves, our children, our fears, our dreams, our childhoods, our future, and yes, even our grannie panties. What can I say? We let it all hang out. Through our words we connected with the audience, who laughed out loud and wiped tears with the tissues we provided (just in case). by

Mo Egeston Jazzes Up LTYM STL

May 2, 2014

Listen To Your Mother St. Louis welcomes once again the legendary jazz pianist Mo Egeston, who will perform in the atrium lobby before show time at St. Luke’s. Mo is well known in the St. Louis music scene and spends his time leading bands and writing music, as well as  working as a collaborative artist, accompanist and educator in both the classroom and private studio. Ask anyone in town, Mo is a true talent, and we are thrilled to have him at our show. What’s so cool about having Mo at the keyboard as our special guest is that he brings a taste of the club nightlife to our audience—without the cover charge or drink minimum! by
