First Time Parents: Audience Sings Along

In this musical, the audience sings along as the actors give the story of the married couple. John and Stella McCartney, from Starr Kinney. The story centers on McCartney’s try to help their young daughter, Jessie, make the best choice for a teacher. Jessie goes to a private school in the country, and she adores her teacher, Jackie Wilson. John sees his own daughters being taught by Jackie, and he is impressed by her teaching skills. John wants Jessie to have her own teacher. And to take her own toys away from Jackie, but she fears this is not possible.

First Time Parents: The Story Behind The Song

In the story, the song “Baby Lullaby” is sung by Debbie, a piano player. It is not sung by the main lead, the role of Jackie Wilson. The story begins when Jessie gets home from school. And the other children ask her why she would want to see her teacher while she is with her friends.

Jessie’s Stealing Plan

Jessie assures them that she is going to ask Jackie Wilson to play for her, but when she is alone, she calls the teacher’s office. She is concerned that the school board might think she did not go to school and keep her there, not allowing her to enter a new school, so she decides to steal a toy from Jackie’s desk. The teacher sees the thief, notices that Jessie had not gone to school, and tells the other children that they should not have been calling her in the first place. He points out that she was always with the others during school hours and should have come involuntarily.

First Time Parents: Jessie – A Theft Suspect

After the first girlfriend sees the theft, she is suspicious of Jessie, but she cannot tell the teacher without getting in trouble. This sets up the main conflict between Jessie and the school board. The story is written by children’s author, Fran Fisher. Many of the words are in italics. The children’s name is used frequently in the book.

Why Does Laura Become Frightened?

The third daughter, Laura, is the most frightened, and John takes her and Charlie away when Harry falls off the cart at the store. That night, Jessie gets very angry when she thinks she knows who had stolen the doll. One child, Peter, seems the thief as a teenager named John, while the other two girls know the singer’s name is Jessie, not the Baby Lullaby. In a flashback, Peter sings the song at a birthday party, but this time, the main lead is John instead of Stella.
