Colorful Musical Lights Up The Magik Theatre Stage

Robert French, Robert French Photography
Becky King as Pinkalicious

The Magik Theatre in San Antonio tackles a production based on the popular children’s book, by Victoria Kann. Here’s Becky King in the lead role, a rather colorful one.

“I play the title role of Pinkalicious in Pinkalicious, the musical. I get to sing — this is a fun musical. I get to sing a lot and dance a lot.”

There’s a reason Pinkalicious is pink.

“She eats too many pink cupcakes, and she goes to sleep, wakes up the next morning pink from her head to her toe.”

There is a fix for the pinkititis that ails her.

“The only way to get back to normal is to eat nothing but green food.”

The whole thing is based on a children’s book, as are all of the Magik Theatre productions. And this one is quite musical.

“It’s basically all music — there’s a little bit of dialogue. Great harmonies, lots of fun.”

So what kind of experience can parents and children expect?

“A good pink one!  She actually talks to the children — should she eat one more cupcake?”

There’s a lot of interaction with the audience.  As to the Pinkalicious run…

“Jan. 9 through Feb. 21.”

We’ve more at here.
