The Listen To Your Mother Show Milwaukee is thrilled to announce that it is returning for its FOURTH season!
Our Milwaukee producers, Rochelle Fritsch and Jennifer Gaskell, and me, are honored and excited to be able to celebrate Milwaukee and its unique voices. 2016 marks four years of LTYM Milwaukee helping to spotlight voices in our community that need to be shared and need to be told. The heart of our LTYM project is to build community and join in getting to know your neighbor.
Nationwide, Listen To Your Mother will be hosting a total of 41 cities: 33 returning cities and 8 NEW cities with Canada making LTYM shows international. It's pretty hard to not pull out all the exclamation marks.
Listen To Your Mother Milwaukee will be announcing auditions in the start of the new year, so follow LTYM along on twitter, facebook, and online . We will be announcing audition dates, our venue for our 2016 show, our amazing sponsors, so visit here often.
Listen To Your Mother shows take place on or around Mother's Day, within a two week timeframe. So Milwaukee, start thinking of your story now -- we look for unique diverse voices that reflect the make up of our special city, Milwaukee.
We know you have a story to tell, whether poignant, bittersweet, reflective, funny, visceral, timeless and universal. What we look for are the real moments that make up what "mothering" means to you.
To tell a story, you don’t have to be a mother, you don't have to be a woman, you just need to feel a story inside you that needs to be heard, on the theme of motherhood.
We encourage you to tell us, about you.
