About BABY: Is there anything more exciting, frightening, and transformational than impending parenthood? As the musical "BABY" opens, we travel to a university campus, where three couples receive some unexpected news. Lizzie and Danny are astonished that they’re about to become parents, when they’ve just entered adulthood themselves. Nick and Pam struggle to conceive, and are determined to try every outrageous method until they do. Alan and Arlene have just started enjoying their empty-nester life, when a night of unexpected passion puts them right back where they began.
Roles: Danny Hooper (Tenor): age 21-22 believes in traditions (with a kid you get married, the man must be the breadwinner). Lizzie is helping him “think outside the box.” Lizzie Fields (Second Soprano): age 20-21 is a free spirit who has just moved in with Danny. She has a practical side (she is a list maker) but believes in the Cosmic Energy inside everyone.
Nick Sakarian (Baritone) age 35 quick with a joke to ease the tension. He always “does things” for others putting them before himself.
Pam Sakarian (Alto) age 33 is a tomboy who will feel complete when she has a baby. The baby will be something she can do for Nick.
Alan McNally (Bass/Baritone) age 48 has always seen himself as a father first and a husband second. With all his children out of the house he is more than a little unsure of himself.
Arlene McNally (Soprano) age 43 has lived her life “by the book.” She is not very comfortable in her skin but is tentatively looking forward to being an “empty nester.”
Ensemble Roles (4-6 Men and 4-6 women): Biology Teacher Nurse Female Exercise Instructor (offstage voice) Male Exercise Instructor (offstage voice) Doctor Prof Weiss (Singer) Dean Webber (Singer) Bus Announcer (offstage voice) Mrs. Hart Operator (offstage voice) Lizzie’s Mom (offstage voice) First Woman Second-Sixth Women (Singing Solos) Doctor (offstage voice) Nurse One (offstage voice) Nurse Two (offstage voice)

Because BABY is a musical, we will be asking all that audition to prove proper Covid vaccination. NPTG will follow all state Covid-related guidelines for performances. Currently no masks or vaccinations are required to audition or perform, but NPTG reserves the right to change their policy as the board of directors sees necessary.
