Theater auditions: ‘Baby With the Bathwater’ in Cocoa Beach

An audition notice from the Surfside Players:

Surfside Players announces open auditions for Baby With the Bathwater
A Comedy by Christopher Durang

Bitingly satiric black comedy in which the author targets parenthood, which is skewered with savagely gleeful wit and characteristically outrageous humor.  As the play begins Helen and John gaze proudly at their new offspring, a bit disappointed that it doesn’t speak English and too polite to check its sex. So they decide that the child is a girl and name it Daisy—which leads to all manner of future emotional and personality problems when it turns out that Daisy is actually a boy.
