About the show

Part of the New York Musical Festival: This musical based on by Sheryl and Carrie Berk bestselling young adult chapter book originated at Vital Children's Theatre. More…

New kid Kylie Carson is "different"–which can make middle school a very scary and unfriendly place. So she cooks up a sweet solution: form a cupcake club that's open to anyone seeking friendship and a place to belong. But the popular clique turns bitter with jealousy and vows to destroy the club's efforts. Kylie is now faced with a tough choice: stoop to the mean girls' level or take the higher road. The pop-infused score by Rick Hip-Flores brings the children's book of the same name to life, and drives home a message of empathy, love, and the power of young people to change the world. This production will support and is best for ages 6 to 12.

“A solid, crisp family musical that is very accessible to kids...The large number of people in the story and the desire to bring home the point may lead to more obvious telegraphing and broad-stroke outlines in drawing characters, some of whom fall into 'types,' but shortcuts help young audiences...
