Auditions are by appointment and can be scheduled by emailing Sandee Buckley at [email protected]. Those auditioning are asked to come with a 32 bar cut Musical Theater piece, copies of sheet music for both themselves and the accompanist, and headshots and resumes. Songs from the show preferred if interested in a major role. Rehearsals will be held on Sunday afternoons and Monday and Wednesday evenings (depending on role); and performances will be on March 15, 16 and 17 and possibly March 22 and 23.

Baby is about three couples who are newly expecting a child, with different but familiar reactions. Lizzie and Danny are university juniors who have just moved in together; athletic Pam and her husband, Nick, a sports instructor, are in their 30s and have had some trouble conceiving; and middle-aged Arlene, already the mother of three grown daughters, is unsure of what to do and is contemplating abortion while her husband Alan is thrilled with the thought of a new baby. Baby’s book is by Sybille Pearson, based on a story developed with Susan Yankowitz, music by David Shire, and lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr.
