As the New Year moves forward and we all learn to write 2013, on our checks, we have some exciting announcements about our Listen To Your Mother Show for Eastern Iowa.
First, we will start accepting essays for auditions on January 25. We will take written submissions first and then have call-backs for in-person auditions. If you need inspiration for what your piece should look like, some of our favorite LTYM pieces from previous years can be found here.
Your pieces should be five to seven minutes when read out loud, so keep within that time frame. And only ONE submission per person. And yes, we accept mothers, others and men. As long as the piece is about motherhood. If you have questions email Lyz: email@example.com.
All the proceeds from our Listen to Your Mother Show will go to support Waypoint in Cedar Rapids. Their mission is to provide and support for women and families in crisis due to homelessness, poverty, domestic violence or sexual assault. It also provides quality, affordable child care. We are so excited to support them as they make the world a better place for families and we hope you’ll help us and them in anyway you can.
We are still working to solidify a venue, but we hope to have an update soon.
Our show will be held May 12, 2013. Time TBD. Yes, that’s Mother’s Day. Tell your family to buy you a ticket. We’ll take care of the rest.
We are excited to announce our first sponsor, St. Luke’s Hospital, who supports women and families through their health services and their fabulous blog: The Real Moms of Eastern Iowa.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor email Lyz: firstname.lastname@example.org
Actually, just email Lyz anyway. She needs the friends.
