Peace, Love and Cupcakes

Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre | website | Lancaster, false 17601 event website

July 12 – August 9, 2019

For Kylie Carson, middle school is a very scary and unfriendly place. So she cooks up a sweet solution: form a cupcake club that’s open to anyone seeking friendship. 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 delicious pop-infused score by Rick Hip-Flores brings the bestselling children’s book by Sheryl and Carrie Berk to life, and drives home a message of empathy, love, and the power of young people to change the world.
