Local presentation of Mother’s Day Series will share stories of all kinds

MOORE — We’ve heard it all our lives and we know it’s something we should do, but sometimes it’s just too difficult to listen to our mothers.

When we were younger, it always seemed like dear old mom had no clue as to what she was talking about. Then we realize, oftentimes too late, that mom really did know a thing or two about life.

Blogger Misti Pryor, along with Julie Bohannon and blogger Heather Davis, are busily working on another local presentation of the “Listen To Your Mother Show.”

The Oklahoma City performance will take place 2 p.m. May 4 at Will Rogers Theatre, 4322 N. Western Ave.

The performances will be filmed and shared on LTYM’s YouTube channel after all shows have been produced. The acclaimed Mother’s Day series of live readings will be hosted in 32 cities this year and is in its fifth year of existence.

LTYM features live readings by local writers on the beauty, the beast and the barely rested of motherhood in celebration of Mother’s Day.

Born of the creative writings of women and men, each production is directed, produced and performed by local communities for local communities, with 10 percent of ticket proceeds benefiting a local nonprofit cause.

Last weekend, the Oklahoma City cast gathered for its first meeting. Many of the production’s members include Norman faces. Jeanabec Higdon and Stephanie Green Clinton both live in Norman with their families, as well as Pryor.

“The stories in this year’s cast are a variety of glimpses into the world of motherhood. I cannot wait for Oklahoma to bear witness to the courage and strength and humor and tenderness of this cast,” Pryor said.

The show will feature 12 to 14 local writers who have something to say about motherhood. Pryor and Davis were cast in the northwest Arkansas “Listen To Your Mother Show” in 2011.
