Based on the novel "Freaky Friday" by Mary Rodgers and the Disney films.

When Katherine, an overworked mother, and Ellie, her teenage daughter, magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. 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. Don't miss this heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic.

The video or audio recording of this performance by any means is strictly prohibited.
