Easy to miss this theater since it is down the alley but very unique inside. The narrow theater has about 100 seats and all have a good view. We loved our experience... More

This will be our 3rd season subscribing to Lifeline! We really like Lifeline Theatre a lot. Every production is cleverly done, how they work in the props, the music. The costumes are fantastic. I love how imaginative they are. Can't wait to see how each show is done. I'm totally sold on it, the stories are original, not Disney. I... More
