FRECKLEFACE STRAWBERY, the hit off Broadway family musical has teamed up with Save The Children and will present a special benefit performance on Saturday, December 10th at 3 pm at MMAC Theatre (Manhattan Movement and Arts Center), 248 West 60th Street off of West End Avenue. Last year when I saw and covered Freckleface, I mentioned that I enjoyed it as much as my kids. Not only that, but it was the first show that my son ever liked so much that he had to wait after the show and get every single cast member’s autographs.
Julianne Moore, Academy-Award nominated actress and author of the Freckleface Strawberry children’s books (and the REAL Strawberry!) will make a special appearance at the show to lend her support for her charity of choice, Save the Children.
Tickets for this very special afternoon are $100.00 and are available at www.savethechildren.org/freckleface or by calling Sarah McLoughlin at Save the Children, 203-221-4181. Save the Children will receive 100% of the ticket price from this performance.
The New York Times has hailed FRECKLEFACE STRAWBERRY as “FAST, FUNNY AND TOTALLY ENTERTAINING FOR ALL AGES!” and Huffington Post raved “IT’S A TREAT!” The show has music and lyrics by Gary Kupper with book by Kupper and Rose Caiola. Buddy Crutchfield directs with choreography by Callaway Award nominee Gail Pennington Crutchfield. MMAC Productions is producer.
