Sandy High thespians present 'Freaky Friday' of musical comedy
During the height of the pandemic when people were asked to stay home, families undoubtedly got under each other's skin, but also became closer.
Such is the relationship depicted in "Freaky Friday" the musical, coming to the Sandy High Auditorium stage on Friday, May 13.
"It's got some good comedy and heartfelt moments," director and drama teacher Christina Moroney said. "It's very relatable."
In this musical rendition of the 1976 movie by the same name (remade with stars Lindsey Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis in 2003) a mother and daughter karmically swap bodies, forcing them to walk a mile each other's shoes and eventually reach a better understanding. Unlike the movie, of course, this version involves much more singing and dancing.
"It is modern, and the musical is very fun," Moroney said. "It's a great musical for a variety of students to participate in."
This will be the Sandy High thespians' first musical with a live audience in three years, and "they are very excited."
"The students are having a lot of fun," Moroney said. "I hear them singing songs from the show in the hallways after class every day."
The show will run at 7 p.m. Friday, May 13, Saturday, May 14, Thursday, May 19, Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21.
Tickets are only available in-person at the door. The box office opens at 6 p.m. and doors open at 6:30 p.m.
