We are thrilled to be able to bring you these motherhood stories on schedule, albeit in a different way, until we are able to share them in person this summer!
We are so grateful for your continued support of the shows, our amazing casts, our fantastic local sponsors, and our 2020 charity, A Precious Child.
Listen To Your Mother is the live stage show that gives Mother’s Day a microphone. Featuring local writers reading their original compositions about motherhood—having a mother, being a mother—each show takes the audience on a well-crafted journey filled with humor, poignant moments, and lots of nods of recognition. You can learn more about the types of stories featured in LTYM productions by watching videos of past seasons’ shows on the LTYM YouTube channel.

Jessey Smithwick, Co-Producer, LTYM Denver
Jessey Smithwick started her Listen To Your Mother love affair as an awestruck audience member and is thrilled to be a part of the 2020 production team. She is originally from Nebraska but is happy to call Colorado her home and has recently embraced the idea of attaching “I Love CO” bumper stickers to her car. After 20 years in the nonprofit sector, Jessey realized her dream of starting her own business as a Wellness Coach and Holistic Health Practitioner. You can find her at The Wellbeing Path where she works passionately with her clients but only sporadically on things like marketing, social media, and budget-balancing. Jessey is the proud mom of an amazing son, Ryan, as well as the bonus mom to a few other wonderful souls. She has been a professional bellydancer for the past umpteen years, teaching in the Denver metro area, traveling to various parts of the country to perform, and co-producing shows wherever she can. Though fueled with great love, Jessey’s attempts at regular self-care, downtime, and being a wife are humorous and mediocre at best.
Ellen Nordberg, Creative Consultant LTYM Boulder
Ellen Nordberg’s stories have appeared in The L.A. Times, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Denver Post, The Huffington Post, Yahoo, Parade, and 5280. She’s a creative consultant to the Listen To Your Mother show, and has been a featured storyteller in the “Truth Be Told” Story Slam. “Stories on Stage” has performed her stories, and she holds a Colorado Author’s League Award “Best Essay” award.
