Bunnicula, Lifeline Theatre's mystery-comedy about the vegetable- biting vampire bunny, will keep going and going and going -- extended to May 30 -- as part of the Chicago troupe's Kidseries.

James Sie adapted the play from the popular James and Deborah Howe book series. Music is by Doug Wood. Performances began Jan. 23; it was originally slated to continue to March 31. Shole Milos directs.

Written in 1979, "Bunnicula" spawned eight sequels with its creepy-comic look at a family who adopts an abandoned rabbit who mysteriously appears next to them in a movie theatre. The first family pets, Chester the cat and Harold the dog, suspect the sinister truth -- that the new bunny is a "vegetable vampire."

Wood has composed several Lifeline shows including The Story of Ferdinand, The Cricket in Times Square and Mr. Popper's Penguins. Sie adapted A Wrinkle in Time and The Cricket in Times Square. Tickets for Bunnicula are $7. Lifeline is at 6912 N. Glenwood Ave. Call (773) 761-4477.
