"Lifeline excels in children’s theater, because they clearly treat it no differently than their main stage. The talent takes this play to the next level... young audiences will receive, regardless of age, a wonderful experience."  –Jason Rost, Chicago Theater Blog
"Under the direction of Elise Kauzlaric, the ensemble bakes up some tasty fun... The show is a perfect length and animation for 3 years old and up."  –Katy Walsh, Chicago Now
"Once again, Lifeline raises the bar on family theatre."  –Bonnie Kenaz-Mara, Chicago Parent

Arnie, a lovable chocolate-covered doughnut with sprinkles, is the happiest pastry in the bakery when he’s finally selected to be taken home by a new owner. But when mild-mannered Mr. Bing tries to eat the unsuspecting Arnie, both are in for the surprise of their lives. Embark upon a hilarious quest to redefine human/doughnut relations with a pair of true originals, in this world premiere musical adaptation by the creators of Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch.

Recommended for kids 5 and up. Children under 2 are not permitted.

A new musical based on the whimsical children's book by Laurie Keller
Adapted by Frances Limoncelli
Music by George Howe
Directed by Elise Kauzlaric
