We are thrilled to announce that LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER San Francisco will be held on Sunday, May 12th, at 7pm. Spend the day with your family then gather your friends, your mother and your mother’s mother and spend the evening with us. This year our show will be held at the gorgeous Kanbar Hall in the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco.
Now we need you!
Auditions for the San Francisco show will be held on Sunday, February 10th and Tuesday evening, February 12th also at the JCC of San Francisco by appointment only.
Simply send an email to email@example.com and please include your piece either as an attachment or in the body of your email. Exact location for auditions and other details will be sent to you with a confirmation email.
We are seeking Bay Area writers to read their original essays on any aspect of motherhood. People of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels are encouraged to audition. LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER is a community-oriented celebration of the beauty, the heartbreak, the trials and triumphs that are motherhood. We encourage diverse perspectives on the subject of mothers and mothering. You don’t need to be a mother to audition, or even a woman! You don’t need to be a writer either, just someone with an original story to tell that comes from your heart.
We are looking for humorous, poignant, painful, joyful or soulful original pieces on mothers and mothering which take three to five minutes to read aloud (please check this before the audition). Previously published work accepted as long as the author retains full rights or has express permission to read the work for this event.
Commitment for cast members includes two group read-throughs in April, a pre-performance run-through at Kanbar Hall and one 7:00 p.m. performance on May 12th.
Mothering in the Bay Area is as diverse as our touted micro-climates. We know there are hundreds of stories here just waiting for a microphone. We can’t wait to celebrate motherhood with you and we are anxiously awaiting your emails. Please spread the word from Novato to Gilroy to Walnut Creek!!
