PINKALICIOUS the MUSICAL is the tale based on the popular children’s book of Pinkalicious, who can’t stop eating pink cupcakes despite warnings from her parents. Her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor’s office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe—a dream come true for this pink loving enthusiast. But when her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can figure out a way to get out of this pink predicament. PINKALICIOUS the MUSICAL is about learning the power of self-control and the importance of moderation.

PINKALICIOUS the MUSICAL features many of the professional equity artists that are familiar to the Growing Stage audiences. Emily Portune (Peter in Peter Pan) brings to life the role of Pinkalicious. Robert Mintz (Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz) portrays Pinkalicious’s little brother Peter with Ryan Malyar (Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz) and Jenna Morris (Mrs. Claus in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer) playing Mr. and Mrs. Pinkerton. Nikole Rizzo (Lilly in Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse) returns to the Palace as Dr. Wink. Jaclyn Blythe, who is making her TGS debut, portrays Pinkalicious’s best friend Alison. Rounding out the cast are six young performers who are sharing their talents to make this a very special treat for the entire family.
