The beloved New York Times best selling children’s book Freckleface Strawberry, by the celebrated actress Julianne Moore, is adapted into a 75-minute musical chock full of music, dance and fun!
The show opens on Friday, October 1st at New World Stages (340 West 50th St- between 8th and 9th Avenues) . The performance schedule is as follows: Wednesdays at 11 am & 2 pm; Thursdays & Fridays at 7pm; Saturdays at 11 am, 2 pm, & 4:30 pm; Sunday at 12 noon and 3 pm. Ticket prices range from $39 – $68.50.
The musical chronicles the life of seven-year-old Strawberry being teased by her schoolmates for having bright red hair and freckles. She feels different from everyone else and does anything to get rid of them- from scrubbing them with soap and even wearing a ski mask to school. Strawberry goes on a journey and discovers that all people are different.
She ultimately learns to accept herself for all of who she is, freckles and all. The heartwarming musical explores the book’s key message that “we’re all different, just like everyone else.” Not only Strawberry but the other characters in the show learn to live in their own skin.
