Dr. Baird sings song of science

Solana Beach – The North Coast Repertory Theater (NCRT) is celebrating Darwin’s Birthday with an evening of Scientific Gospel performed by Dr. Stephen Baird and the Opossums of Truth, showing one night only, Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 7 p.m.

Following in the tradition of social and political satirists such as Tom Lehrer, Mort Sahl, Mark Russell and the Smothers Brothers, Dr. Baird, a practicing medical doctor, has developed a unique brand of musical satire while creating a singular genre of American humor called “Scientific Gospel.”

Like his predecessors, nothing is sacred to Dr. Baird.

Admission is $15. NCRT is located just east of I-5 on Lomas Santa Fe Drive in the Southeast corner of the Lomas Santa Fe Plaza, Solana Beach. Box Office hours are noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday; noon to 7 p.m., Thursday through Sunday.

Call (858) 481-1055 or toll-free (888) 776-NCRT (6278) for reservations and information.
