CHICAGO —Lifeline Theatre's KidSeries presents Montauciel Takes Flight, a world premiere family musical with book by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member James E. Grote, music and lyrics by Russell J. Coutinho, and directed by Aileen McGroddy.

Montauciel's name may mean "climb-to-the-sky," but for all her life the young ewe has been stuck on the ground. Then one day, her adventurous spirit carries her to the town of Annonay, where she teams up with the legendary Montgolfier brothers. Bringing her ingenuity and love of science to bear, Montauciel helps the two scientists invent the hot air balloon, and she soon finds herself captaining the first "manned" test flight, with a duck and a rooster as trusty co-pilots.

Take a leap into the unknown and realize your full potential with this world premiere musical inspired by the story of the first living creatures to take to the skies in a human-made flying machine. This production is recommended for children ages five and up ( children under two not permitted ), and runs approximately one hour with no intermission.

Montauciel Takes Flight runs Saturday, Jan. 13 — Sunday, Feb. 18 at Lifeline Theatre, 6912 N. Glenwood Ave. Press opening is Sunday, Jan. 14 at 1 p.m. Regular performance times are Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. ( Previews are Saturday, Jan. 13 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.; and Sunday, Jan. 14 at 11 a.m. ) Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the Lifeline Theatre Box Office, 773.761.4477, or by visiting www.lifelinetheatre.com .
