The one-hour musical, with book and lyrics by Elizabeth Kann and Victoria Kann and music, lyrics and orchestrations by John Gregor, is based on the best-selling children's book "Pinkalicious" by Elizabeth Kann and Victoria Kann.

In PINKALICIOUS THE MUSICAL, Pinkalicious 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 predicament.

The production features Amber Dickerson, Sarah Mae Banning, Todd Ritch, Alexa Lebersfeld, and Sean R. Jones.
