The Woodland Opera House Theatre for Families presents “Pinkalicious, the Musical,” which opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19. The show runs through Nov. 4 with performances Fridays at 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Based on the children’s book by Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann, “Pinkalicious” is the story of a little girl named Pinkalicious Pinkerton, who can’t stop eating pink cupcakes despite warnings from her parents. Her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor’s office with the rare disease Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe — a dream come true for this pink enthusiast. When her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can figure out a way to get out of this pink predicament.

This glittering stage adaptation bounces from one upbeat, Broadway-style musical number to the next. A story about learning the power of self-control and the importance of moderation, this musical has with all the ingredients of a wonderful family treat.

The cast includes Erin Bruni (Pinkalicious), Bailey Robinson-Burmester (Peter, brother), Jordan Hayakawa (Alison, best friend), Crissi Cairns Kessler (mother), Eric Alley (father) and Nancy Agee (Dr. Wink).

Keri Ruanto, James Hayakawa, Emily O’Flaherty, Hayley Harrison, Ryan Everitt, Lauren Giovannetti, Tara Keeble, Emily Miller, McKenna Kessler, Alex Romero and Natalie Vogt are featured in the ensemble.

The show is directed by Crissi Carins Kessler. The music director is Lori Jarvey, with choreography by Crissi Cairns Kessler and Eva Sarry. The show is underwritten by Jennifer Goldman, D.D.S., and Amy Tran, D.D.S.

Reserved seats are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors and students and $8 for children 17 and under. Balcony prices are $8 for adults and $5 for children. Tickets are available at www.woodlandoperahouse.org or 530-666-9617.
