It’s easy to relate to getting a tummy ache from eating too many sweets.

But turning pink?

That’s the storyline in the Warren Arts production of “Pinkalicious, the Musical” with shows this Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Sofie Womack plays the leading role in this all-student cast that’s guided by all-student directors.

“It’s my first time being in a starring role so this play is special to me,” said Sofie, who added her favorite color is actually purple.

The play tells the story of Pinkalicious Pinkerton, a little girl who loves everything pink. But she finds eating too many pink cupcakes has an adverse effect when she turns pink.

“I diagnose her with pinkitis,” said Abby Bain, who plays Dr. Wink. “The cure is to eat more green vegetables, but she eats more pink.”

When little Pinkalicious pushes the boundaries and eats another pink cupcake, she turns red. That’s when she realizes she’s gone too far.

“The moral is too much of a good thing can be bad,” said Abby.

Brennen Beaty plays an evil cupcake and a bee and kicks off the catchy tune “Buzz Off.”

“It’s very energetic and also playful,” said Brennen of the show.

The play will take place indoors at the Warren Arts theater at 5482 Manchester Highway. The crowd will be socially distanced.

For those looking to see the play, but don’t feel comfortable visiting a theater, the show will be live streamed during both its performances this weekend.

“We’re very excited to be able to release what we do, our passion, to everybody in their homes through live streaming,” said Sophia Hunt, one of the show directors. “We’re excited to be able to share our work with our audience.”

In addition to Hunt, Jana Denning and Carter Cantrell are show directors. Dylan Womack is music director.
