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
