Contrary to popular belief, all the world is not a stage—sometimes people just say things to get attention. See an actual stage with this GrouponLive deal to see Pinkalicious at the Lower Ossington Theatre. For $40, you get two general-admission tickets for premium seating (a $79 value). Premium seating will be assigned at the front of the house when patrons call to reserve their seats. Shows run every Sunday at 1 p.m. through June 24.
Based on the popular series of children's books, Pinkalicious weaves a delightful musical tale designed for children 2–10 years old. The show's eponymous heroine takes her love of all things pink too far when she gorges herself on pink cupcakes, altering her skin to a rosy hue. After a doctor diagnoses a case of pinkititis and recommends a healthy dose of greens to cure it, a stealthily ingested pastry changes her skin tone to a dark red. Startled, Pinkalicious finally eats her veggies and restores her skin to its natural shade, teaching children a valuable lesson about balanced diets, the importance of listening to medical professionals, and the hardships of chameleons.
Praised by Kids Toronto as "catchy, upbeat, and amusing," the show's songs keep toes tapping through the entire runtime. After the final notes have faded, a post-show meet and greet allows youthful patrons to shake the hands of newly discovered stage idols and furtively lick fingers to check for left over frosting.
