  Arnie The Doughnut at Lifeline Theatre

Arnie The Doughnut

Lifeline Theatre
6912 North Glenwood Chicago

Arnie, a loveable chocolate-frosted, rainbow-sprinkled doughnut, is the happiest pastry in the bakery when he's chosen 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. Man and doughnut are drawn into a sugar-fueled existential crisis as they work to redefine their relationship while trying to outwit the meddlesome President of the Cozy Confines Condo Community. Join Arnie on a zany quest to prove that he's more than just delicious - and that friends come in all shapes and sizes - in this hit musical adaptation of the 2003 book that kicked off the beloved series by Laurie Keller. This production is recommended for children ages five and up (children under two not permitted), and runs approximately one hour with no intermission.

Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...Doughnuts make everything better! Lifeline's current production is a delight, from George Howe's songs to Rachel Sypniewski's doughnut costumes, and especially Juanita Andersen's performance as the evil condo board president and the French Cruller."

Chicago Theatre Review - Highly Recommended

"...But the real star of this musical comedy is Arnie the Doughnut, brought to sparkling life by newcomer Jared Rein. This actor is making his auspiciously delicious debut at Lifeline playing the personable, rainbow-sprinkled, chocolate-frosted treat. Mr. Rein is very likable, easy to understand and very talented, as is the entire cast. Whether singing about the ingredients that result in a great doughnut, making new friends or solving problems, this cast, led by the Jared Rein, wins over their young audience in song and dance. In a word, this musical for young audiences is just plain delicious."
