Pinkalicious the Musical - Dallas Children's Theater

Pink-A-Boo!  It’s the most pinkatastic show to hit Dallas / Ft Worth!

Dallas Children’s Theater (DCT) kicks off its 29th season in the pink with Pinkalicious the Musical, September 21 – October 21, 2012.

Pinkalicious the Musical is the sparkling stage adaptation of the popular children’s book, Pinkalicious, and a celebration of family and love.  Pinkalicious is a little girl who loves the color pink.  After overindulging in pink cupcakes one evening, she turns pink overnight.  When she wakes up the next morning, she is thrilled!  Her parents take her to the doctor and she is diagnosed with pinkititis – only the second case in history.  On the way home, they stop at the playground but her best friend Alison doesn’t recognize her and she is attacked by birds, butterflies and bees who mistake her for a pink flower.  At home her parents try to encourage her to eat more greens, but she sneaks another cupcake while no one is looking.  The next morning she wakes up red and develops pink eye pinkititis whereby she can only see the color pink.  Is she brave enough to do something to fix this predicament?

The Pinkerton family seems to have other secrets too – someone knows something about the first case of pinkititis….  And what is brother Peter afraid to admit?  In the end they all learn that you can have too much of a good thing, but when it comes to FAMILY there’s no such thing as too much LOVE!

Opening Night Pink-Out Party

Attend the show on Friday, September 21 for extra fun one hour prior to the show and at intermission.  Wear pink or your favorite color, eat yummy cupcakes donated by Sprinkles Cupcakes and enjoy coloring, compliments of Michaels Stores.  Get your own photo op with our version of Pinkalicious and even Flat Stanley!  Walk the pink carpet and learn some healthy lifestyles tips from our friends at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas and their mascot, Blue Bear.  Cupcake face-painting and a host of other activities.  Check out DCT’s costume design contest entries and meet the winners!  Great giveaways too, including one free show poster per family.  Totally Pinkatastic!

Pay What You Can Preview Night

Attend the final dress rehearsal on Thursday, September 20 at 7:30 pm and pay-what-you-can!  A suggested donation is $10 per person.

So excited about Lone Star Circus’ new holiday show, Cirque Banquiste! My family got to see a preview of Cirque Banquiste at the North Texas Kids Family Expo back in November and the cast was so  exciting to watch! The show will open on Thursday, December 29th at The Rosewood Center for Family Arts and play for six performances through January 1st. What a cool way to spend a family friendly New Year’s Eve!

I love The Rosewood Center. That’s where Dallas Children’s Theater is based and it’s such a nice, intimate venue which means you get to see everything up close! We recently went to see Madeline’s Christmas and The Nutcracker there and had so much fun. By the way, be sure to check out my review of Madeline’s Christmas at my blog on NorthTexasKids.com.

My kids can’t wait to see Cirque Banquiste. They were really impressed with the acrobatic moves, balancing acts and the hoola hooping (with up to 10 hoops!) that we saw in the short preview at the Expo. If that little bit was so good, imagine how great the full performance will be.

The show features acrobats, aerialists, hand balancers, jugglers, from all over the world who will perform together to create a sensational circus extravaganza! Can’t wait to see all the fancy costumes they’ll be wearing. A couple of Dallas acts, Slappy and Monday from Slappy’s Playhouse, are also in the show.

Remember, there are only going to be six performances from December 29th to January 1st so get your tickets ASAP! Tickets for Lone Star Circus range from $20-$45 and you can get 10% off right now by entering code LSC at http://lonestarcircus.org/.

 

TheMomsJournal is giving away 4 tickets to the opening night performance of Cirque Banquiste on Thursday, December 29th at 7:30pm. Here’s how you can enter this contest:

 

  1. Like TheMomsJournal Facebook page and leave a comment there about what you’d like to be if you could be if you could join the circus or why you’d like to see Lone Star Circus.
  2. When you’re done, send me an email.
  3. Contest ends this Thursday, December 22nd. Winner will be notified by email.
