Not knowing that her mother has left the nest to gather food, Baby Bird decides to find her. While searching, Baby Bird meets an array of colorful characters – Cat, Dog, and Hen – each of whom she greets with the simple plea: are you my mother? Unfortunately for Baby Bird, neither Cat nor Dog nor Hen turns out to be her mother. Baby Bird, however, is persistent. She is determined to find her mother no matter what. Her courage is bolstered by the unlikely “family” of characters who are ready to lend a paw or a wing to help their friend.
Based on P.D. Eastman’s classic picture book for young readers, Are You My Mother? is ArtsPower’s enchanting musical about Baby Bird’s journey – an adventure that overflows with love, dedication, and friendship. Adapted for the stage by playwright and lyricist Greg Gunning and composer Richard DeRosa, Are You My Mother? shows children and adults alike how loss can be turned into empowerment and how Baby Bird ends up finding more than she is looking for.
The show is recommended for those ages 5-7 and runs 55 minutes.
