PEACE, LOVE AND CUPCAKES: THE MUSICAL is the story of Kylie Carson, the target of a middle school bully who uses cupcakes and compassion to unite her entire school-popular girls, jocks, allergy kids and all-while staying true to her "sweet self." Kylie feels she is "different" but learns she has the power to make a difference.
