Last year I was honored and thrilled to be part of the Listen to Your Mother: Portland cast. A friend had mentioned the upcoming auditions on Facebook. When I emailed to request an audition my hands were trembling as I typed. I wanted to vomit. Then I went to my audition. And I wanted to vomit. And then I was cast. And then I may have, actually, tossed a few.
Being on stage, sharing my story about my daughter with Down syndrome, was the first time in the process I didn’t feel nauseous. Something about sharing your story, I don’t know, it changes you. It releases you. I felt free.
This year for 2016 I am even happier to be back with Listen to Your Mother, this time as producer, working with the lovely Carisa Miller, who directs and inspires.
