We're thrilled to announce the release of FRECKLEFACE STRAWBERRY – EXPANDED CAST VERSION.
About the Expanded Version
The expanded version adds other “students,” and splits out some of the doubled/tripled roles into individual characters. It also allows for an unlimited number of extra ensemble members to sing in the group numbers. This lets the 7 cast members in the regular version grow to 15+ in the expanded version. With a few tiny exceptions, none of the material itself has changed, nor has anything been added. Lines/lyrics have simply been re-assigned or redistributed to account for more characters.
