Pinkalicious, the Musical is based on the book by Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann, about a young girl named Pinkalicious who cannot stop eating pink cupcakes despite warnings from her parents, the release said of the pink indulgence that results in the character reportedly being diagnosed with “Pinkititis.”

The release described how the head-to-toe affliction turned the girl pink and although it was a “dream come true for this pink loving enthusiast,” she had to figure out how to rid herself of the predicament.

“Pinkalicious, the Musical” is about learning the power of self-control and the importance of moderation, detailed the release.

“Pinkalicious, the Musical” is directed by Ross Collins, musically directed Paige Beckman, choreographed by Noel Irick and produced by Aimee Avery, according to the release.
