ArtsPower's musical begins when Baby Bird hatches 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.
Are You My Mother? features a rich, upbeat musical score and imaginative sets. Greg Gunning, ArtsPower's Artistic Director, adapted and directed the show and wrote the lyrics. Richard DeRosa wrote and orchestrated the musical score.
Mark and Gary Blackman founded ArtsPower in 1985 and have been steering its course ever since.

"At ArtsPower, we are committed to improving children's lives through the performing arts," said executive producer Gary Blackman. "By introducing our young audiences to enthusiastic characters like Baby Bird, and to the concept of 'family,' children can see new possibilities in life and in themselves."
