Our MainStage subscriptions, a $120 value, are a low $80 -- and you'll be supporting one of the most highly acclaimed theaters in Chicago.

"Few American theaters can do this kind of thing — with such imagination, dignity, humor and judicious restraint — quite like the master storytellers at Lifeline."  -Chicago Tribune

"The artists and craftsmen who work with this ensemble are masterful."  -Chicago Sun-Times

"Spectacle and story so ambitious and colorful, poetic and vulgar, heroic and homely, it's like eavesdropping on your favorite author's waking dream."  -Centerstage Chicago

Our KidSeries subscriptions are $30 -- a savings of 33%, which means a family of four can enjoy a whole year of entertainment for only $120!

"Lifeline has always cared about families. Its KidSeries has a slew of outspoken fans -- whenever I write about children's theater in Chicago, those who take their youngsters to Lifeline invariably point out that Lifeline shouldn't be forgotten."  -Chicago Tribune

And subscribing makes you eligible for all the perks that come with being a part of our subscriber family:

  • Pick your seats before anyone else

  • Unlimited FREE ticket exchanges

"Invariably friendly, accessible, unpretentious, affordable, warm and good-natured under the artistic direction of Dorothy Milne, Lifeline has a very apt name, if you see the live arts as a crucial part of a venerable Chicago neighborhood."  -Chicago Tribune
