Casting has been announced for the return engagement of Freckleface Strawberry The Musical, which will reopen on November 8 at MMAC Theatre (Manhattan Movement and Arts Center). Buddy Crutchfield directs the production, with choreography by Gail Pennington Crutchfield.

Based on the best-selling children's book by Julianne Moore, the show features music and lyrics by Gary Kupper with book by Kupper and Rose Caiola. The musical focuses on a young woman who has to learn to accept the freckles on her face, for which she is unmercifully teased by classmates.

Francesca McGrory will star as Strawberry, with the cast also featuring William Bailey, Sarah Haines, Matthew Hopper, Bridget Riley, Ashley Tobias, and Welsey Tunison.

The production features set design by Adam Koch; costumes by Holly Cain and Fabio Toblini; and lighting and sound design by Bernie Dove.
