Freaky Friday Auditions

In Announcements, by , on August 2nd, 2019

The Niagara University production will be the Western New York premiere of this new musical.

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