Lifeline Announces 19-20 Season

Lifeline Theatre has announced the 2019-20 season, its 37th.

The season features a return of Dorothy L. Sayers’ classic whodunit “Whose Body?,” followed by an adaptation of National Book Award winner “Middle Passage,” and concludes with a world premiere rock musical based on Norse mythology “LOKI, The End of the World Tour.” The KidSeries season opens with a musical adaptation of Bernard Waber’s classic “Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile” followed by the world premiere of “Bunny’s Book Club,” and concludes with a world premiere musical adaptation of “Neither,” a story that celebrates what makes us unique. Additionally, Lifeline will produce the 23rd annual Fillet of Solo Festival, a three-week, multi-venue solo performance and storytelling festival.
