The Getting Near to Baby Rehearsal Blog – Welcome!

Getting Near to Baby continues our initiative to bring award winning novels for young people to the stage. It tells the story of 12 year-old Willa Jo and Little Sister who, after the death of their baby sister, are whisked away from their mom to live temporarily with Aunt Patty, who has a million rules about everything. For this production we felt it was imperative to cast children in the roles and as a result we are excited to welcome five actors under the age of 16. We knew they would have a unique perspective on the process of bringing this story to life so we asked them to participate in this on-line blog. Twice a week we will receive an entry, written in their own words, of what is happening in the rehearsal room. We hope you will check back on the work of the young cast and join us in March and April for Getting Near to Baby.
