Cupcakes, especially those at SweetArt, hold delicious, belly-pleasing magic within their miniature size -- everyone knows that. But in The Runaway Cupcake: A Play About Eating for Families Who Eat
, an actual enchanted cupcake stirs up some trouble. This latest offering from the OnSite Theatre Company was written by Nancy Bell, and it tells the story of a baker who is trying to appease a pesky bill collector, with a small cake and a mysterious girl also in the mix. A folktale set in the modern world, The Runaway Cupcake
is a site-specific production for cupcake-eating theatergoers of all ages -- yes, of course, dessert will be served! The show is performed at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (July 17 through 26) at SweetArt (2203 South 39th Street; www.onsitetheatre.org
). Tickets are $12 to $20.
Fridays, Saturdays, 7 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: July 17. Continues through July 26, 2015
