"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Once again Lifeline Theatre brings unbridled humor and memorable original melodies to a beloved children’s classic."  –Chicago Theatre Review
"I took my 9-year-old son as my date in order to get a true perspective on how well the piece read with its targeted audience. By the end of the 45-minute production, we both were thoroughly entertained, both of us laughing out loud through most of the performance."  –
"Sie’s script does a great job of condensing the story... making it an excellent, kid-friendly retelling of the novel. In addition, the show is rife with all-ages humor... the jokes are tasteful and universal enough that both the kids and adults in the audience can enjoy them."  –Splash Magazines

At a showing of Dracula one dark and stormy night, the Monroe family discovers an abandoned rabbit. When they bring him home, resident know-it-all Chester the cat suspects the worst after spying gleaming fangs in the bunny’s mouth. And as vegetables start turning up mysteriously drained of their juices, even easygoing Harold the dog wonders if they have a supernatural menace on their hands. Brave the night and dare to embrace our differences in this musical adaptation of the 1979 book by Deborah and James Howe.

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