Freaky Friday

By Bridget Carpenter

Directed by Katie Gundlach

When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. By spending a day in each other's shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another's struggles, learn self-acceptance, and realize the immeasurable love and mutual respect that bond a mother and daughter.

Principle Roles:

ELLIE BLAKE [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: TEEN/YOUNG ADULT]
The hero of the story, and a rumpled, disorganized "everygirl." Ellie is smart, funny, and passionate about her school's underground scavenger hunt, but sees herself as a "Whats-her-name," easily forgotten -- unlike her "perfect" mom. Must also portray Katherine in Ellie's body. Strong belter.

KATHERINE BLAKE [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 35-55]
Single mother who runs her own catering business. Over-protective and type A, Katherine believes she can have it all by doing it all: even planning, designing, and catering her own perfect wedding. Must also portray Ellie in Katherine's body. Strong belter.

FLETCHER BLAKE [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 8-12]
Katherine's eccentric son and Ellie's younger brother. He is a budding puppeteer who habitually annoys his sister (but secretly looks up to her.)

MIKE RILEY [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 35-55]
Katherine’s fiancé and a contractor by trade. A warm, reliable, easygoing guy, he adores Katherine and her kids. Bari-tenor.

ADAM [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: TEEN/YOUNG ADULT]
Teens. Love interest for Ellie. Slouchy and scruffy, he is a paragon of adorable cool. Acts as the “List Master” of the school’s annual underground scavenger hunt. Tenor.

TORREY [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: ADULT]
Katherine’s assistant, a high-strung perfectionist; comfortable singing the contemporary/pop musical theatre style.

SAVANNAH [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: TEEN/YOUNG ADULT]
The villain. Brilliant, aggressive, a winner. Dancing a plus; comfortable singing the contemporary/pop musical theatre style.
