Pinkalicious the Musical, presented by The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati, is recommended with a 4-Star Rating. League of Cincinnati Theatre (LCT) Panelists commended Emma Parks for her role as Pinkalicious and David A. Centers was recognized for his scenic design.
On Emma Parks’ performance, panelists noted “Pinkalicious herself was a bundle of energy and carried it throughout the show,” and “Parks as Pinkalicious was stellar– brash and loud and had a nice mix/belt to match.”
Also, “The set held surprises for the kids and got ooh’s and ah’s when the turn table revealed Pinkalicious’s bedroom, the glow in the dark cupcake dreams, and more.”
According to LCT panelists, “The play held the attention of all the little girls, moms, dads and grandmas” with a great story, “and a great message.” Pinkalicious the Musical is based on the popular children’s book of the same name by Victoria and Elizabeth Kahn, and tells the story of a girl who turns pink after she eats too many pink cupcakes. At first, she loves being her favorite color, but discovers that there are problems (including being mistaken for a flower and being attacked by delightfully musical bee and bluebird puppets). She resists the remedy (spoiler alert: eating green foods).
LCT recommends you bring your favorite youngster to find out if she ever returns to normal.
