Freaky Friday

by Bridget Carpenter, Tom Kitt & Brian Yorkey, based on the novel by Mary Rodgers & The Walt Disney Motion Pictures

October 4 – November 20, 2016


When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again before mom’s big wedding. Disney’s Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a hilarious, contemporary update of an American classic in which a mother and daughter really see what it is to be a family and experience each other’s lives first-hand, if only for a day.

With a score by the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of Next to Normal and If/Then and a book by Parenthood’s Bridget Carpenter, Freaky Friday is a delightfully entertaining world premiere musical for anyone with a perfectly imperfect family.

The musical contains some teen themes, and is recommended for ages 8 and up. Parents should use their best judgment when bringing younger children to the theater.

Running time is approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes, including intermission.
The show contains theatrical smoke and haze and strobe lights.
