Based on the children's book by P. D. Eastman, the musical begins with Baby Bird hatching from her egg only to find an empty nest. Unaware that her mother has left to find food, Baby Bird decides to leave the nest to look for her; along the way, she meets an array of colorful characters who help and advise her. Persistent Baby Bird is determined to find her mother no matter what.
ArtsPower's artistic director Greg Gunning adapted and directed the show and wrote the lyrics. The musical score was written and orchestrated by Richard DeRosa.
