Cohoes Canal Square Park
Sunday musicals in the park
Throughout the month of July, Park Playhouse will present two musicals on Sunday evenings - Freckleface Strawberry at 5pm and Shout The Mod Musical at 7pm. Join us for both shows in one night or on two different weekends - but don’t miss either one of these wonderful family productions presented for FREE thanks to the City of Cohoes in the newly redesigned Canal Square Park!
Presented at 5pm
Freckleface Strawberry The Musical, is based on the beloved New York Times best-selling book by celebrated actress, Julianne Moore. 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 Freckleface be brave enough to finally face her complexion in the mirror? With the help of her friends, Freckleface learns that everyone is different – and that's what makes everyone special.
Presented at 7pm
With its irresistible blend of hip-swiveling hits, eye-popping fashions and outrageous dance moves, SHOUT! The Mod Musical takes audiences back to the music, style and freedom of the 1960s. Traveling in time from 1960 to 1970, this musical review follows five groovy gals as they sing terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as "To Sir with Love," "Downtown," "Son of a Preacher Man," and "Goldfinger."
