Whippany Park HS Theatre presents Freaky Friday, the musical

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – Whippany Park High School Theatre presents Freaky Friday, a musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, with music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey – the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of Next to Normal and If/Then..

There will be four showings between February 22-24 at the Whippany Park High School Theatre located at 165 Whippany Road, Whippany, NJ 07981.

When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Freaky Friday 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.

Run time is approximately 2 hours, including one intermission. Show times are 7:00 p.m. each night with a matinee at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, February 24.

Ticket prices are $15 for general admission and $10 for senior citizens, students and staff of WPHS. Tickets can be purchased at or during box office hours.
