This time two weeks ago, we were nervously wondering how our fourth Listen to Your Mother show would go in the The Cities.

As you can probably guess, there was absolutely nothing to worry about.

Our cast was more than ready.

And we are ready to shine a light on what is already so, so very golden, which is our fourth annual show, our Mother’s Day tradition, our gift from Ann Imig.

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 2.55.42 PM

P.S. Our show is 100% sold out, doors will open at 6:15, and the popcorn is famously delish, so bring cash for that! :) See you tomorrow, Twin Cities!

We want to take a moment to really thank our local sponsors. Not only do they make our show possible, but they come back to support women and storytelling and the arts and this show year after year. So if you’re in need of any of these services, may we suggest:

Realtor: Brady Kroll, Realtor

Photography: Glimpses of Soul Photography

Distillery: Twin Spirits Distillery

Help With Lice: Minnesota Lice Lady

Videos: TWVS motion imaging + branded content

For so many various reasons, thank goodness each of these businesses exists, is local, and is fabulous!

A big thank you to the Jeremiah Program for all of the good work that they do supporting women and children in The Cities, we are thrilled to partner with them again, donating 10% of all ticket proceeds!

A big thank you also to BlogHer & SheKnows Experts Among Us, our North American media sponsor! #ShareTheLuv and tell us your Mother’s Day memories — check out our director/producers’ stories, thanks to our sponsor Luvs!

Those of you who have been with us since our first year, will remember Colleen Kruse as our hilarious showstopper in 2013.

Here’s what Colleen is up to today: Colleen Kruse is a Minneapolis based comedic storyteller whose writing has appeared in the Star Tribune, the Rake Magazine, and the Minnesota Women’s Press. You may have seen her perform on NBC, Comedy Central, or the Independent Film Channel. And she will be live from the stage on May 5th at 7:PM, holding your hand and making you laugh between stories. You can meet our beautiful […]

Listen To Your Mother Twin Cities: Our Local Sponsors and Cause!

March 16, 2016

Listen To Your Mother may be a national phenomenon but one of its strengths is that each show reflects the city in which it takes place. This hyperlocal focus extends from the producers and cast to the sponsors. Each show celebrates and benefits its community, as a portion of ticket sales go to a local charity. We’ve introduced you to the cast but now it’s time to formally introduce you to our sponsors. The Twin Cities show has been fortunate to have sponsors that support the show and keep coming back. This year, all of our local sponsors are returning to help us bring our stories and celebration of motherhood to the stage at the Riverview Theater.       We are thrilled with their continued support and hope that you will give them yours. Like their pages and use their services! We are also excited to announce that we are once again partnering with […]
