"Freaky Friday" 2 tickets at The Round Barn Theatre PLUS 2 Threshers Dinners at Amish Acres Restaurant in Nappanee, Indiana
Runs: May 24th - July 14th
The new musical, Freaky Friday is based on the beloved 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and two hit Disney films. When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Watching Mom try to navigate high-school and seeing the daughter almost walk down the aisle are just two of the hysterical situations the show holds for people of all ages.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 is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic.
Transformations, like the crawling caterpiller becomes a graceful butterfly, happen before audience’s eyes in all seven main stage musicals and comedy. From “Life Could Be A Dream” to “Beauty And The Beast” the season highlights how the human spirit can evolve, improve or reconcile. “Life Could Be a Dream” follows a group of young boys who become singing stars; Papa Yoder, the patriarch of “Plain and Fancy”, in its 33rd season admits that “we grow too soon old and too late schmart”, “Freaky Friday” is brought to stage to show a mother and daughter learn to appreciate each other, Mark Twain’s Huck Finn learns along the “Big River” to love and accept all people, “Anne Of Green Gables” grows into a studious young woman and changes those around her and “The Sunshine Boys” rekindle their long broken friendship. The Holiday show, the long awaited revival of “Beauty And The Beast,” is the ultimate transformation that love can bring.
