"Baby"looking for back stage and on-stage help

The Marble Valley Player family is pleased to announce that their "Baby", that is, their production of "Baby, the Musical",  is due on Nov. 2, 3, 9, & 10 at the West Rutland Town Hall Theater. More people are needed to help with the delivery of this production, both back stage and on-stage.

The play, written by Sybille Pearson with music by David Shire and lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr., first ran on Broadway  from 1983 to 1984 and was nominated for Tony Awards for Best Musical and Best Original score. The musical concerns three couples on a college campus as they deal with the painful, rewarding, and agonizingly funny consequences of conceiving a baby. Director Mitch Rosengarten has cast Eric Korzun and Tegan Waite as the college students; Frank Wright and Jen Page as the thirty-somethings, having trouble conceiving;  and Brian Narkewicz and Kim Moyer as the middle aged parents looking forward to their last child graduating from college. Gathering in support of the three couples is a talented ensemble comprised of Jessica Allen, Nathan Loso, Barb Kirk-Elkin, Jessie Clayton, Emma Williams, Olivia Lane, Rose Kennedy, Courtney Gandee, Beth Wolven, Bonnie Kelly and Randy Kelly.

Two or more additional men (bass/baritones) are needed for the ensemble. If you've always wanted to be on the stage, singing in a small chorus or ensemble, there is a part for you. For more info call Mitch at 818-470-5202 or email mrmitchlet@aol.com. Rather be back stage? People to help with sound, props, set painting, etc. are also needed.
