Best Of The Twin Cities: Small Business Spotlight

Best Of The Twin Cities: Small Business Spotlight

One thing that we all know for sure is that our Twin Cities Listen to Your Mother show would be impossible to put on without the generous support of our sponsors.

What you might not know, though, is that Vikki and I are super choosy about who we work with. We want to work with sponsors who we already adore and respect and can throw all of our support toward.

So when we found Melanie and John Willy of Edina Realty, my goodness, did we ever know that they’d be perfect for us!

Melanie and John sold my (Galit) house in less than two weeks, at above asking price, and were so kind, helpful, and total go-getters.

We sat down with Melanie to learn a bit more about her and their business and what we learned is that we adore them even more than we thought we would. Friends, meet the Willys. We know you will adore them, too!

Our Emcee

Our Emcee

We're absolutely delighted to introduce our show emcee, Hawona Sullivan Janzen.

If you were in the 2016 show audience, her name will sound familiar, as she mesmerized our audience that year with her story, “Grandmother and Beebee.”

With heart and a whole lot of humor, Hawona shared the conflicting messages on womanhood she learned from her southern grandmother and aunt following her parents' divorce; they were her village.

So it seems absolutely perfect that she will be the one to hold our LTYM Twin Cities audience's —our village's — hand as you listen and learn from — read: laugh and cry with — the 12 women who will be on the Riverview stage this year. We're all so very lucky to welcome Hawona to the Riverview stage once again.

Every single year we're absolutely blown away by the talent and heart that we're truly privileged to hear at LTYM Twin Cities auditions. We're truly bettered for having heard every single story in every single audition.

Today, we couldn't be more excited to share the news that these are the 12 women who will grace the Riverview Theatre on May 10, 2018 for the sixth annual Listen To Your Mother Show! Get ready, Twin Cities, because they are going to knock your socks off!

Audition Information

Audition Information

For us, Listen to Your Mother audition season is, quite literally, the most wonderful time of the year.

Listen to Your Mother is the celebration of motherhood that we all wish we’d thought of, and that luckily national director Ann Imig did think of! Now affectionately known as LTYM, Listen to Your Mother is a series of live, on-stage readings across North America on or around Mother’s Day.

Most LTYM readers aren’t professional writers and many of them aren’t mothers. LTYM readers are people with stories about motherhood to tell. And this includes absolutely everyone—especially you.
