Director saves best production for Door County's New Year's Baby

The first baby born this year at the Door County Medical Center arrived earlier than expected but has a father who is accustomed to the spotlight. Jacob Janssen and Lisa Buchs of Sturgeon Bay are the proud parents of August Willard Janssen, born at 10:34 pm on New Year's Day. The healthy, six-pound-four-ounce baby boy was due to be delivered on January 6th but decided to enter the world stage on January 1st. Jacob Janssen, the artistic director at Third Avenue Playworks, says little August's debut came soon after TAP's last performance of the year, "A Christmas Carol – the Radio Show" on December 31st.



Janssen says the name August is one they liked and that Willard is his grandfather's name.  The Janssens also have a two-year-old son, Leo, named after Lisa's grandfather.  The Maternal grandparents are Kevin and Karen Buchs of St. Cloud, Minnesota, and the paternal grandparents are Mark Janssen and Meg Doolan of Kiel.
