Enjoy a special event honoring motherhood, and giving voice to the real and personal stories of local cast members.

The goal of every Listen to Your Mother production is to take the audience on a well-crafted 90-minute journey of true stories about motherhood. From hilarious and heartwarming, to emotionally intense and profound, Listen to Your Mother entertains, energizes, brings the community together and leaves everyone feeling a little less alone and a little more understood. LTYM is created by NextStage Productions/Senior Theater.

Get your ticket for the matinee performance at 4pm or the evening performance at 7pm.

This event is related to the current exhibition We're Still Here: Stories of Seniors and Social Isolation.

From the creator of Listen To You Mother:

LTYM began when I looked at our national Mother's Day holiday and suddenly found it sorely lacking. I felt that motherhood deserved something more than a frittata once a year something less retail-related and more community-focused. I wondered if Mother's Day could mean something beyond the celebration of the individual matriarch something bringing mothers together, recognizing the commonality among us all moms and non-moms alike. As a blogger and part of an emerging cultural revolution in mothering and self-expression, I wanted my real life community to get a taste of the vitality of the dynamic women drawing inspiration and support from one another online.

Mother's Day remains a holiday by and for mothers, yes, but now LTYM puts motherhood at the head of the table, receiving everyone mothered and all of us mothering as guests of honor.
For me, now, Mother's Day means giving a voice to stories of mothering that both bring us together and expand perspectives. It means sharing these stories locally with live audiences and globally.
