When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through April 22 2018

Lifeline Theatre’s KidSeries adaptation of Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt’s 2007 book, penned by ensemble members Heather Currie and Derek Czaplewski, is an uplifting one-hour musical. Dew Drop, a happy-go-lucky fairy played by Darian Tene, gets the opportunity to apply for the job of a lifetime: the next Tooth Fairy. It turns out to be a much harder gig than Dew Drop thought, though, and she undergoes specialized training under the supervision of a trio of vivacious firefly assistants and TTF (the Tooth Fairy) herself, played by a charismatic Diana Coates. In addition to Laura McKenzie's catchy songs, accompanied by a host of dance numbers, the Tooth Fairy’s high-tech Command Central and Dew Drop’s difficulties bench-pressing quarters were a hit with young audience members on the afternoon I attended. This show is recommended for ages five and up. —Marissa Oberlander
