OCTOBER 2021 SEASON POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19
Much like the main characters; Ellie and Katherine Blake, the mother and daughter duo suspended in an alternate reality waiting for a magical moment to return to their usual lives, the team at Engadine Musical Society have decided to postpone our October show of Freaky Friday and move our production to May 2022.
Read our full statement here.
The new musical, Freaky Friday, based on the beloved 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, features a book by Bridget Carpenter – the co-executive producer and writer on the beloved TV hits, “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood” – and music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey – the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of Next to Normal and If/Then.
When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just 24 hours before Mom’s big wedding to put things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical comedy based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is an hilarious, contemporary update of the classic story, in which a mother and daughter see what it means to be a family while experiencing each other’s lives firsthand, if only for a day.
Set in the present day, Freaky Friday features a tuneful pop-rock score, befitting a work that has effortlessly updated throughout its several iterations. Warmhearted, humorous and touching, this fresh take on the classic story is perfect for family audiences of all ages.
Book by Bridget Carpenter
Music by Tom Kitt
Lyrics by Brian Yorkey
Based on the novel Freaky Friday by Mary Rodgers and the Disney films
