"Pinkalicious the Musical" -- the tale of a little girl with a big appetite for anything pink, especially cupcakes -- is now playing at Waveny Park, presented by the Summer Theatre of New Canaan.
As part of the young audience program, "Pinkalicious" will run in rotation with "The Cat in the Hat" and "The Little Mermaid Jr." "Pinkalicious" performances are scheduled weekends through Aug. 11.
Cupcake lovers age 3 and up will delight over Pinkalicious Pinkerton and her mischievous and pink ways. Mrs. Pinkerton makes pink cupcakes and Pinkalicious simply cannot get enough. When Pinkalicious eats one too many pink cupcakes, she catches a case of Pinkititis and turns pink from head to toe. It'll take the wisdom of her broccoli-eating little brother to help her get out of this predicament as she learns to eat her "green food."
The story displays many important lessons for young girls and boys, including the values of respect, kindness, moderation, self control, honesty and staying true to yourself. Pinkalicious learns that being yourself is the most important lesson of all.
Written by sisters Victoria and Elizabeth Kann, "Pinkalicious" features Caitlin White (Pinkalicious); Johann George (Peter/Bird); Allie Potenza, of New Canaan, (Allison/Dr. Wink/Butterfly); and Danielle Defassio (Mrs. Pinkerton/Butterfly).
The professional creative team includes Christian Libonati, of New Canaan, director; David Turner, music director; Devon Allen, lighting designer; Kialynn Byrd, set designer; Katie Oxman, of New Canaan, choreographer; Jim Hart, technical director; Orliv Nativ, costume designer; and Rachel Powers, stage manager.
