Lifelineís latest is a charming musical adaptation of Jenny Offillís childrenís book about a lovable pet sloth. Libby (Eunice Woods) is an only child who really wants a pet; after consulting the Animal Encyclopedia, she chooses one that meets her momís conditions by not needing to be walked or bathed or even fed. Sparky the sloth (Andres Enriquez) is sweet but slow and not very exciting, as Libby discovers. Nevertheless she prepares for a Great Sloth Extravaganza to impress her judgmental friend, Mary Potts (a winning Juanita Andersen). As you might guess, this doesnít work too well. Ultimately, though, Libby learns to love Sparky for who he is, and not what she wants him to be. Itís a great lesson, and not overplayed in this tight production.
