EASTCHESTER, N.Y. --- Three Westchester actors -- Eastchester's Danielle Valdes and Port Chester's Peter Green and Jeffery Aldana -- are returning to the stage in the spring musical, "Baby," written by Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire.
The production, directed by Carin Zakes and produced by Nova Hall, at the Darien Arts Center (DAC) in Darien, Conn, is being showcased April 21, 22, 28, 29 and May 5 and 6 at 8 p.m., and April 23 and 30 at 2 p.m. in the theater's Weatherstone Studio.
The story examines how parents-to-be experience the emotional stresses and triumphs, as well as the desperate lows and comic highs that accompany the anticipation and arrival of a baby.
The play follows three couples as they work their way towards parenthood under three very different circumstances.
Valdes plays Pam Sakarian, one of the thirty-somethings, opposite Aldana who plays her husband Nick.
Green, on the hand, plays Alan Mcnalley, the husband of a middle-aged couple. An early graduate of SUNY Purchase’s Theatre Conservatory, Green has been involved in community theatre in Westchester and Fairfield Counties since 1996 as actor, director, and teacher. Along with Zakes, he is co-producer and artistic director of the Rye-based summer Shakespeare program, LawnChair Theatre.
"Baby" is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International. Tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for students at www.darienarts.org . For more information, call 203- 655-8683.
