Attention NYC Writers and Performers: AUDITIONS

Listen to Your Mother

As you know, I am involved with bringing a wonderful show to NYC called LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER.  The show is by women, for women, about women, and I have proudly blogged about it here.

Seeking New York City-area writers and/or performers to read their original essays on any aspect of motherhood in the NYC premiere of LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER, to be held at the Goldman-Sonnenfeldt Family Auditorium at the JCC in Manhattan on Sunday, May 6th, 2012.

People of all ages, types, backgrounds, and experience levels are invited to audition.  No previous stage experience is necessary.  Non-moms WELCOME (men too!). We encourage diverse perspectives on the subject of mothers or mothering.

Auditions will be held on the following dates by appointment only:

                                                                                                           Sunday, February 26 th    11am – 2pm

                                                                                                            Monday, February 27 th     6pm – 9pm

                                                                                                          Tuesday, February 28th   10am – 1pm

To schedule an audition, email listentoyourmothernyc@gmail.com. Please include your name and your availability during the time slots listed above. Auditions are being held at a midtown Manhattan (West side) studio. Exact location and other details will be sent with your confirmed appointment time.

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 rehearsals, a pre-performance run-through at the JCC, and the 2 p.m. performance on May 6th, 2012.

LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER is a national series of live readings by local writers in celebration of Mother’s Day. This year will be the third for Listen To Your Mother nationwide, and the first for New York City.

The NYC premiere is being directed and produced by mothers and theater professionals Amy Wilson (@amywlsn), Varda Steinhardt (@squashedmom), Holly Rosen Fink (@theculturemom), and Julie Nemitz (@stage_mama).
