I am honored to be a part of the 2016 Listen to Your Mother Providence cast, one of this year’s 41 cities to host live shows.
“The mission of each LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER production is to take the audience on a well-crafted journey that celebrates and validates mothering through giving voice to motherhood–in all of its complexity, diversity, and humor–in the form of original readings performed live on-stage by their authors.
LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER aims to support motherhood creatively through artistic expression, and also financially–through contributions to non-profit organizations supporting families in need. Each LTYM show donates a minimum of 10% of ticket proceeds to a local cause, as well as providing the cause awareness/fund-raising opportunities.”
In Providence, this year’s beneficiary is Foster Forward, an organization through which Nick and I are all trained and ready to begin mentoring a child. The piece I am reading is directly related to foster care and I cannot wait to share it. Their mission is to “to empower lives impacted by foster care. We have an unwavering commitment to support children and youth, families, and the child welfare system as a whole, to grow, connect, improve, and move forward.”
I would love you to join me! The Providence show is April 28, 2016, 7:00 pm, click here to buy tickets. I will share the video of my performance when it is available sometime in July.
I’d love to hear from you! Have you been to a LTYM show? Have you read in one?
