Photo submitted Listen to Your Mother show returns to county James Wilson Staff Writer jwilson@plumasnews.com Everyone has a story. In every person's story hovers one figure that sets that person on the road to life his or her mother. Listen to Your Mother, a show of written word performed in front of a live audience, is set to return to Plumas County for its third year April 30 at the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy. This year's show, directed by Margaret Garcia and Tina Terrazas, has a cast of Plumas characters that the directors say will undoubtedly entertain and enlighten the audience. "We have different people each year, and different essays," Garcia said, explaining the concept of the show. "This is a chance to explore different ideas of motherhood." This year's cast includes Linda Cayot, Jennifer Wolfe, Marcy DeMartile,. Darlene Gutierrez, Becky Deemer, Jennifer Mason, Melinda Rother, Gabrielle Magers, Tiffiney Lozano and Tina Terrazas. The Listen to Your Mother show is a nationwide phenomenon, with performances in 32 cities across the U.S. Plumas County is one of three locations in California to host the show this year. Each year, writers submit essays about motherhood. Garcia explained that the show almost builds itself through the submissions the directors receive. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with a 7 p.m. showtime. Presale tickets ($10) are available at Plumas Arts, the Feather River College bookstore, Lupines and through Sterling Sage. Tickets will cost $15 at the door. Ten percent of proceeds from the show will go to Plumas Crisis Intervention and Resource Center.
