Disney’s Freaky Friday
April 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm EDT
Bald Eagle Area Drama Club set to perform “Freaky Friday”
Feb 23, 2021
Bald Eagle Area Middle/High School to perform Freaky Friday the Musical, with opening night set for Thursday, Dec. 22, at Bald Eagle Area Middle/High School Auditorium.
The show highlights the lives of an overworked mother and her teenage daughter when they magically swap bodies and they have one day to put things right again before Mom’s big wedding. Freaky Friday is a hilarious, contemporary update on 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.
“What is more ‘FREAKY’ than the year 2021,” Bald Eagle Area High School Drama Advisor Ryan Wade said. “This show is a perfect choice and should bring some great laughs for the audience.”
The student cast features Kendall Gavlock as Ellie Blake and Carlie Evock as Katherine along with Zoe Coleman, Sage Fisher, Addison Flick, Kennedy Sayers, Lydia Walk, Cazra Bainey, Claire Homan, Alabama Jukes, Sami Shawley, Keira Soltis, Emmalee Guest, Amber Thompson, Elizabeth Roan, Grace Bacon, Alice Crane, Charity Guiser, Daina Julian, Ashlyn Lucas, Colton Wagner, Matthew Crane, Dylan Smith, Joe Lange, and Emily Gardner.
The musical, Freaky Friday, premiered at the Signature Theatre in Arlington, Virginia on Oct. 4, 2018. The musical is based on the beloved 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, released in 1976 and 2003. The musical features the 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.
The production offers three performances; April 22, 23, and 24 with the house opening at 6:30 pm and a 7 pm curtain. Advance tickets may be purchased at https://sites.google.com/beasd.net/bea-drama-club/home for $7 for Adults and $5 for students. There is also a virtual option available at www.showtix4u.com for $10.
