This Saturday hundreds of people will head to The Woodland in Maplewood, NJ eager to hear intimate stories about motherhood in all its forms at this year’s North Jersey Listen to Your Mother show.
The one day-only annual event draws many loyal fans who return every year to hear live readings by local writers –many from our SOMA community—celebrating motherhood in all its complexity, diversity, and humor. That’s right. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry—it’s better than “Cats!”
Plus, every year, Listen to Your Mother donates a portion of the show’s proceeds to a local charity that supports women and children. This year, we have partnered with the Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges, which provides healthy food for local families in need.
The two shows at 3:00 and 7: 00 pm are SOLD OUT! Tickets sold out in record time this year as the show has become a favorite way to spend time with friends and family and a great kick off to Mother’s Day weekend. But if you don’t have a ticket and still want to see the show, there are volunteer spots available! Help the production team pull off this special show and you get to see in exchange for your time! All volunteers can will be able to see the show in exchange for support on the day.
