Disney's Freaky Friday The Musical
Based on the book by Mary Rodgers
Directed by Anna Skidis-Vargas
Teenage Ellie and her mom Katherine couldn’t be more different. But when they magically swap bodies and have just 24 hours to get back to normal, they have to work together to solve the mystery of their inverted identities. By spending a day in each other’s shoes (literally!), mother and daughter come to appreciate each other in ways they never could have imagined. Share in the celebration in this hilarious and heartfelt new musical, based on the hit Disney films!
