>Freckleface Strawberry The Musical

Loved It!!! That is my complete and honest opinion. We went to see Freckleface Strawberry on a Special Mommy Daughter Day.

Based on the book by Julianne Moore, Frecklface Strawberry. I bought Samantha to see the Musical. It was totally awesome! Freckleface Strawberry is about a young girl who has in her opinion the worst imaginable thing - Freckles. She is teased at school and tries everything to erase her freckles. Then she decides to put on a funny hat so no one will see her freckles. Her friends then missed her being around. By the end she realizes that having freckles is not that bad and her friends like her for who she is on the inside.

The show iss great for children. It is a short show with no intermission. All the kids in the theater were quiet and very attentive. It takes a great show to make that happen. On the day we went they were giving out Strawberry silly bands, whcih my daughter completely loved.

The Aftermath:
Nearly four times a week we get a special performance by Samantha of Freckleface Strawberry. She makes up words and does some dances pretending to be Freckleface Strawberry. It is adorable. She was in love with the show. I bought her the book which was a huge hit. My daughter has no freckles. Weeks after seeing the show, she insists she can see a freckle on her hand from time to time. Sometimes she even brushes over her cheeks and says "Mommy, do you like my freckles?" Oh and Strawberry Shortcake, she now calls Freckleface Strawberry. To her the two are the same.

I definitely recommend going to see this show. It was awesome!

About the Show - From the Freckleface Strawberry Website
Freckleface Strawberry was just like every other girl – except she had bright red hair and something worse…FRECKLES!

Now in the brand new family musical, Freckleface Strawberry, based on the beloved New York Times Best Selling book by celebrated actress Julianne Moore, you and your family can step inside the book's pages with Freckleface and friends as they learn to love the skin they're in.

And what a story you'll see!

Freckleface Strawberry will do anything to get rid of her freckles – from scrubbing them with soap, to caking on makeup, and even wearing a ski mask to school! Will her schoolmates realize it's her under the mask? Will Freckleface be brave enough to finally face her complexion in the mirror?

With the help of her loveable schoolmates including an amazingly talented ballerina, a cutie jock, a charming ditz, and a totally kooky teacher, Freckleface learns that everyone is different - and that's what makes everyone special!

With soaring live music, awesome dancing… and a freckleface full of laughs, your whole family will love this brand new musical for all ages . . . freckles or not!
