New Canaan Goes Pink

Summer Theatre of New Canaan (STONC) continues its season of Theatre for Young Audiences with a deliciously scrumptious and frothy production of Pinkalicious The Musical as part of the theatre’s 2012 Theatre Festival in Waveny Park.

Pinkalicious The Musical is about learning the power of self-control and the importance of moderation. Pinkalicious is obsessed with pink cupcakes and she can't stop eating them despite warnings from her parents. Her dream is to radiate pink, and when she eats one too many pink cupcakes, her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor's office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe.

But when her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can figure out a way to get out of this Pink predicament. She bravely follows the doctor’s order to eat green foods only. Due to her new resolve, Pinkalicious is eventually transformed back to normal and realizes that she needs to be careful about what you wish for.

The book and lyrics are by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann. Victoria is an award-winning illustrator and author of the picture book series featuring the whimsical and effervescent character, Pinkalicious. Elizabeth, co-author of the text of Pinkalicious with her sister, is a doctor who has yet to see an actual case of Pinkititis.

 John Gregor is the composer and co-lyricist.
