‘Pinkalicious: The Musical’ to be presented March 15 – 17

Mount Mercy’s department of communication, literature and arts proudly presents Pinkalicious: The Musical. Performances will be held March 15 – 17 at 7:30 p.m., with a special matinee on March 17 at 1:30 p.m. Seating may be limited, the musical will be performed in the McAuley Theater.

This widely popular show is currently playing in Chicago and has appeared on New York City stages. Pinkalicious, a young girl, has an obsession with everything pink – especially pink cupcakes. Despite warnings from her parents, Pinkalicious refuses to stop eating pink cupcakes and ends up with a case of Pinkatitis, which turns her pink from head to toe. Pinkalicious is thrilled to be pink, but the doctor tells her she must eat green foods to get better, leaving Pinkalicious with quite the dilemma.

Pinkalicious: The Musical is based on the book Pinkalicious, and serves as a good reminder that it’s always best to be yourself. Inspired by her two daughters who love eating cupcakes, playing dress-up, and everything pink, Victoria Kann served as a co-author and illustrator of the first two books, Pinkalicious, and Purplicious, as well as Pinkalicious: The Musical. Her sister and co-author, Elizabeth Kann, is a doctor, whose writing has been featured in various newspapers and print publications.

Tickets are $8 for the general public, $6 for students and senior citizens, and $2 for children ages 12 and under. Group rates are available at the student price for parties of 10 or more.
