Babies may be small bundles of joy but they sure are a big complication! Baby is a warm-hearted musical rom-com that explores the highs and lows of impending parenthood.

In the spring – the season of new beginnings – three couples discover that they’re pregnant. There are the college students, barely at the beginning of their adult lives; the thirty-somethings, having trouble conceiving but determined to try; and the middle aged parents, looking forward to seeing their last child graduate from college when a night of unexpected passion lands them back where they started. As the seasons change, so too do their feelings towards each other. Forced to face their insecurities and changing relationships, they'll all come to realise that there’s never a perfect time to have a baby.

Written by the acclaimed duo Richard Maltby Jr. and David Shire, this is a musical full of joy, humour, and love.

Theatre Company Reviews:

“Mr. Shire writes with sophistication over a range that embraces rock, jazz and the best of Broadway schmaltz... Mr. Maltby's lyrics are not just smart and funny, but often ingenious.” – The New York Times

“MKEC Productions are carving-out a well-deserved reputation for highly professional, polished and enormously watchable shows that attract gifted actors and singers. And the company has an insightful knack of picking-up on off-beat, lesser known musical offerings, avoiding the repetitive treadmill of the more run-of-the-mill revivals.” – Act Drop
