The musical is based on the best-selling children's book by
celebrated actress Julianne Moore. Freckleface Strawberry will try
anything to get rid of her freckles - from scrubbing them with soap
to applying makeup and even wearing a ski mask to school. With the
help of her loveable schoolmates, she learns that everyone is
special, even if they are different. Through music, dancing and
laughter, this new musical teaches us to love the skin we're in.
