Baby Mama Drama by Nina Foxx

Based on the best-selling book Just Short of Crazy

Directed by Nina Foxx

Baby Mama Drama is set in modern day Texas where Attorney Alexis Pearson is getting her life together after being left at the altar. With her new hair and new hobby, she finds herself in hot water and falling in love when she accidentally breaks a man’s arm in her Tae Kwon Do Class. Unfortunately, her love interest, Remedy Brown, has a seedy past and an ex-wife from the other side of the tracks who is not quite ready to let go. The two ladies discover that the road to “happily ever after” isn’t always a neat and clean yellow brick road and must discover their own self-worth before truly moving on.

Please email headshot and resume to to schedule an audition ( if I don’t’ already have it) Include the role for which you are auditioning, your name, and your phone number. All roles are currently non-paid for the reading. Future full production in late 2012 is a possibility and actors cast in the reading will be considered first for roles.

If a role requires singing, it won’t be necessary for the reading, but it would be a plus.

Reading date is to be determined according to when casting is finalized but we are looking at mid-late June.
