Often, what makes everyone different is exactly what makes them so special.

Proof positive is the story of “Freckleface Strawberry,” a girl just like any other, except she had freckles everywhere. And she’ll do anything to get rid of them – from scrubbing them with soap, to 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 a talented ballerina, a cutie jock, a charming ditz and a totally kooky teacher, she learns an important life lesson.  

Based on the book by Julianne Moore, VAHS Theatre Arts will present four performances of “Freckleface Strawberry” next weekend, and people are invited to come and check it out. Tickets are $5 and can be obtained by calling the VAHS Theatre box office at 845-4488.
