I've made it to the big stage!

I cannot tell you how proud and excited I am to announce my debut...
 
"Listen to Your Mother" is a live, ninety minute stage performance which has roots in twenty four cities across America. Now it's time for St. Louis to shine!

I have finally made it to the big stage...the Emerson Auditorium stage at St. Luke's Hospital Institute of Health Education in Chesterfield, MO. My debut will be May 11th, two performances, 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Doors open one hour before each performance.

This is a benefit, and the shows are expected to sell out. Ticket information at this link:

Ellie Grossman, Suzanne Tucker, Laura Edwards, Naomi Francis, organizers of the event, "Listen to your Mother, St. Louis" selected my story about motherhood. I will read it aloud, along with eleven other local women who will read theirs. Fifty percent of the proceeds will be donated to "Connections to Success" a not-for-profit foundation that encourages women to escape from poverty, heighten their self esteem and gain successful careers.

Please, will you come out and support this cause? Just don't heckle me.

Break a leg! Not literally, of course. That's showbiz talk. Now that you're in the biz, you'll have to learn the lingo.

I predict SRO. Good for you.

Okay, I just cannot resist to tell you to 'break a leg'; and then note that if you really did break a leg, you're in the right venue! I love it that the benefits are helping other women...how wonderful!
