How crazy would be if for one day you and your mom literally swapped bodies. I mean, how freaky would that be? In a heartfelt, comedic and unexpectedly emotional score, a mother and daughter will learn self-acceptance, and realize the immeasurable love and mutual respect for the bonds between mothers and daughters when an uber-organized mother and her spontaneous teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right. Masquerading as each other, they must work together to solve the mystery of how to break the spell.
By spending a day in each other’s shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another in a way they never could have imagined. In the end, both learn the true power of love and the strength of the bond between a mother and daughter in this heartfelt and hilarious adaptation.
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 the TV hits, “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.
