When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. 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.

Freaky Friday Character Breakdown
A single mother who runs her own catering business. Overprotective and Type A, she believes she can have it all by doing it all: event planning, designing, and catering her own perfect wedding. Must also portray Ellie in Katherine’s body. Strong belter.
ELLIE BLAKE: female, teen
The hero of the story. A rumpled, disorganized “everygirl.” She is smart, funny, and passionate about her school’s underground scavenger hunt, but sees herself as a “Whats-her-name,” and easily forgotten, unlike her “perfect” mom. Must also portray Katherine in Ellie’s body. Strong belter.
FLETCHER BLAKE: male, young preteen
Katherine’s eccentric son and Ellie’s younger brother. He is a budding puppeteer who habitually annoys his sister (but secretly looks up to her).
MIKE RILEY: male, 30s-40s
Katherine’s fiancé and a contractor by trade. A warm, reliable, easy going guy. He adores Katherine and her kids. Bari-tenor.
ADAM: male, teen
Love interest for Ellie. Slouchy and scruffy, he is a paragon of adorable cool. Acts as the “List Master” of the school’s annual underground scavenger hunt. Tenor.
