Abstract: In this paper, we compute the Gerstenhaber bracket on the Hoch-schild cohomology of $C^\infty (M)\rtimes G$ for a finite group $G$ acting on a compact manifold $M$. Using this computation, we obtain geometric descriptions for all noncommutative Poisson structures on $C^\infty (M)\rtimes G$ when $M$ is a symplectic manifold. We also discuss examples of deformation quantizations of these noncommutative Poisson structures.
