We are so excited to officially open the casting doors to the 5th Twin Cities Listen to Your Mother Show! We’ll be hosting four open audition times (listed below). Sign up, prepare your story, and come read it to us. After listening to everyone read, we’ll announce our 2017 Twin Cities cast! Some things to note: Your story should be 3-5 minutes long — time yourself and add or delete as needed, then time yourself again. We’ll time you at auditions as well. The theme is motherhood, what you do with this is up to you. But your story has to center around motherhood — the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, the sad, the scary, and, of course, the golden. Tell the story only you can tell. Be detailed. We want you. To get ready for your audition, watch past stories on the LTYM YouTube channel. There are over 1,000 stories in the Listen to Your Mother YouTube archive. We’re […]

Calling all local #Minnesota writers!

January 2, 2017

It is, quite literally, the most wonderful time of the year: Listen to Your Mother season is just around the corner! Listen to Your Mother is the celebration of motherhood that we all wish we’d thought of, and that luckily national director Ann Imig did think of! Now affectionately known as LTYM, Listen to Your Mother is a series of live, on-stage readings across North America on or around Mother’s Day. Most LTYM readers aren’t professional writers and many of them aren’t mothers. LTYM readers are people with stories about motherhood to tell. And this includes absolutely everyone—especially you. The mission of each LTYM show is to give voice to motherhood–the good, the bad, the sad, the ugly, the hilarious, the golden, and of course, the beautiful–in the form of original readings performed live on-stage by their authors.

Thank you for a night to remember, #TwinCities

May 17, 2016

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. The Riverview was prepared. And you all filled every inch of the night with all the spirit that Ann Imig’s creation is made of. Joy, laughter, tears, beauty, heart-holding, and more me, toos than we could have ever hoped for. Thank you, Twin Cities, for a night to remember. We’ll see you next year!
