Lifeline Theatre KidSeries Announces the World Premiere Production “Extra Yarn,” February 18 – March 19

March 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

$15 – $20

Lifeline Theatre presents the world premiere musical of the KidSeries production “Extra Yarn.” The musical is based on the book of the same title by Mac Barnet; illustrated by Jon Klassen, adapted by Lifeline Theatre ensemble members Jessica Wright Buha and John Szymanski, with music by John Szymanski, and directed by Anthony Kayer, also a Lifeline Theatre ensemble member.

While her parents work tirelessly at the local factory, Annabelle discovers a small wooden box in the snow filled with yarn that seemingly never ends. Armed with her love of friends and family, and her grandmother’s knitting needles, she effortlessly knits sweaters for the whole town. But the Archduke isn’t too pleased and will stop at nothing to get that never-ending yarn for himself. Bundle up with the discovery of family, friendship and fighting for what’s right in this world premiere musical by the team that brought you We Found a Hat.

Performances will be held at the Lifeline Theatre, February 18 – March 19. Single ticket price is $20, with group rates for 8 or more available upon request. Special performances for open captioning, audio description and sensory friendly are also available on select dates. For tickets and more information, visit www.lifelinetheatre.com
