PINKALICIOUS, THE MUSICAL! Opens Today at El Portal Theatre
Kelrik Productions will present PINKALICIOUS, the Musical, playing today, February 15 - March 2 at the Monroe Forum Theatre, bringing children's programming to the historic El Portal Theatre, 5269 Lankershim Blvd. in the heart of the NoHo Arts District.
Based on the 2006 New York Times best-selling children's book by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann, PINKALICIOUS, is the tale of a girl who can't stop eating pink cupcakes despite her parents' warnings about the dangers of over-indulgence. Her passion for pink 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 a way out of her predicament.
Perfect for children ages 3 to 12, PINKALICIOUS, is directed and choreographed by Erik Austin and Sheila Guererro with musical direction by Joshua Eli Kranz. According to Austin, "Pinkalicious is not just a really funny musical; it teaches children valuable lessons about self control and the importance of moderation. It's a great opportunity to introduce young people to the magic of Live Theatre."
This fun-filled family show runs approximately one hour which makes it ideal for younger children. PINKALICIOUS features a colorful cast of characters and audience participation/interaction.
