How wild would be if for one day you and your mom literally swapped bodies. I mean, how freaky would that be? Freaky Friday is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional tale of uber-organized Katherine and her overly-spontaneous teenage daughter Ellie, who each refuse to see things from the other’s perspective: until they magically swap bodies. With just one day to put things right, they must work together to solve the mystery of the spell while spending the day masquerading as each other. After spending the day in one another’s shoes, Katherine and Ellie find understanding in a way they never could have imagined, learning the true power of love and the strength of the bond between a mother and daughter.
Based on the beloved 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, Freaky Friday features a book by Bridget Carpenter – the writer of “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood” – and music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey – the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning composers of Next to Normal. Freaky Friday is sure to please the whole family.
