We asked our 2018 cast members why you should come to Charleston's Listen To Your Mother show. Here's what they had to say.
1. The show is on Mother's Day Weekend, so it's the perfect gift.
"I see a part of myself in each story." Ali Anderson
"You will find your own story being told, your mother's story, your sister's story, your child's story....if you bring your heart." Angela Gibson Goss
2. The show is for everyone. You don't have to be a mom to have a motherhood story.
"You will hear your own story told by many of the storytellers and you will realize you're not alone." Keith Dee.
Ashley Ariñez adds, "We could all use a little more of that."
"You will be astounded to hear people tell stories that you thought were yours alone." Helen Mitternight
"You will spend an hour-and-a-half immersed in pure humanity and realize how we are all connected in our joys and sorrows." Carolyn Click
3. You will be entertained. You will be moved. The show is designed to take you on a ride.
"Some of these stories will make you laugh; some will make you cry. Some will make you want to punch a wall in anger and some make you want to walk out of the room, pick up the phone and tell your parents how much you love them." Whitney McDuff
"You will find yourself leaving the comfort of your chair to explore these stories within your own imagination" Sydney Barnett
"In the end, everything we write is either for instruction or entertainment, and what better way to give our audience a taste of both?!" Katie DePoppe
4. It tells a complete story.
"This show at its core is about healing." Jackie Morfesis
"You will leave the show feeling the strength of motherhood." Rev. Dr. Arthur Holmes.
"The show is a web connecting everyone as one, one family, one heart. Mary-Margaret Futch
5. Each year, we have a brand new cast with new stories to tell. And yet, the heart of the project is always the same.
"Listen To Your Mother is an annual geyser of truth that keeps the heartbeat of the Charleston community, and is an experience that cannot be missed!" Katherine Hansen
"The show is a must-see!" Dede Kennedy.
