Donuts and fables

The doughnut is out of the box! (Again!) Arnie goes to New York!!!
Remember just last spring, when Frances and George wrote a delicious little musical called Arnie the Doughnut? Well, Arnie has received a big honor. It is one the musicals selected for the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF). So Arnie is packing his sprinkles, hitting the road and he’s even got his own website! He is a doughnut with a dream! And he’s headed to the Big Apple. Go Arnie!

And the Fairy Tale peeps are hitting the road too!
Okay, they’re not going as far — just a few blocks south on Glenwood Avenue — to the first annual Edgewater Fable Fest! How to Survive a Fairy Tale will perform (in a stripped down festival-version) at Senn High School on Friday May 18th at 4:30pm and Saturday May 19th at 3:00pm. So in case you missed it here at home, the Fairy Tale continues!

And more about Fable Fest and Lifeline (the Storytellers are going too!):
In addition to their (almost) every Monday performances at The Glenwood Bar (one block north of Lifeline) the Lifeline Storytelling Project will be doing a storytelling show, Beer and Fables, on Friday May 18th at 8pm at the Kitchen Sink on Berwyn. The Lifeline Storytelling Project is a writing/performing workshop featuring young professional artists affiliated with Lifeline Theatre. The Storytellers have their own Facebook page where you can get more scoop.
