A father’s take on parenthood

Are you an expectant father wondering what it will be like to see your baby’s ultrasound for the first time?

Lucas Myers and his hilarious one-man show Hello Baby are coming to The Arts Station on February 26.

Are you an expectant father wondering what it will be like to see your baby’s ultrasound for the first time? Or are you looking for parenting advice like how to put your children to bed after you’ve had a few too many drinks? The Arts Station is bringing a unique “Instructional Lecture“ to the stage that will answer all your parenting questions.Nelson-based actor, play writer and songwriter, Lucas Myers, is bringing his hilarious and unique one-man-show, Hello Baby, to Fernie.“It’s a lot of things that we don’t talk about,” said Myers about the content of the show.He said that one of the scenes is based on the experience he and his partner had with the ultrasound of their first baby, Frances.“My partner had had a dream and was convinced that the baby was a boy,” said Myers. When they went to get the ultrasound, they were in New Zealand, and the nurse asked if they wanted to know the sex of the baby.Myer’s partner told the nurse that she had had a dream and was convinced that it was a boy.“The nurse told us that it was just a dream,” said Myers.In Hello Baby, Myers portrays the event by having a character singing to the ultrasound monitor, after the dream that had been built around the potential sex of the baby fades away.Myers said that the show can be topical and reassuring for expectant parents and parents with experience will have a laugh.“Being a parent is crazy, but it’s fun crazy,” he said.Myers said, “There’s been a push lately to get dads more involved. Men go through a change as well but most of the prenatal information is for the expectant mother. It’s a big deal, and as guys we’re going to be stoic and strong, but it’s really scary.”Myers and his collection of characters will be at The Arts Station on Saturday, February 26 at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at The Arts Station and Carosella.
