A musical that looks at life from the perspective of an infant, offering an innovative, amusing means of satirizing an all-too-often absurd adult world. The play centres on the first few days of a very diverse set of babies. The group includes an orphan, a magician, an accident, a baseball player, a pianist, an actress, a cowgirl, a nursery prankster, and the know-it-all. This ensemble of characters’ sings, dances, crawls, laughs and cries, all so believably and to the audience’s delight.

A musical based on the book by Cliff Jones
