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 that 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.

Students enrolled in our Summer Stock camp get to bring the story of Freckleface Strawberry to life! We are so excited to bring this beloved children’s story alive on our stage. The schedule for this show is 1-5pm, June 27th-July 1st and 9-5 July 5th-9th at the CYT studio. Students will then get to perform three shows on July 9th at the CYT Blackbox Theater for all of their families and friends! Your registration fee includes costumes, sets, and props provided by CYT. Spots are limited, so register today to be a part of this production of one of the most beloved children’s books of all time! Tickets will be available to the public very soon!

PLEASE NOTE: This is a show/rehearsal process experience and not a day camp experience. Rehearsals and performances will be held at the CYT Blackbox Theater.
