"Lifeline’s delectable and enchanting new confection, a world premiere for young audiences, has been adapted with originality, spirit and style... Imagine the jubilant bounce and bliss of a 'Schoolhouse Rock' ditty, and you have an idea of how pleasurable this little 60-minute musical can be."  –Chicago Theatre Review
"A delightful family musical packed with fun for all ages. If there’s a little person in your life, definitely take them to see this exciting show."  –Splash Magazines

Dew Drop just landed her dream assignment: training to become the next Tooth Fairy! But after coming on board, she learns that there’s more to the job than simply being sparkly: it’s going to take guts, skill, and a whole lot of training to succeed. Working closely with her mentor – and a flashy flock of firefly assistants – Dew Drop must learn the rules of Command Central, master “Tooth-o-Finder” technology, and bench press mountains of quarters before she can fly on her own. Tackle a new challenge and learn what it takes to succeed in the fast-paced tooth collection industry with this world premiere musical based on the 2007 book by Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt and David Slonim.

Recommended for kids 5 and up. Children under 2 are not permitted.
