Freaky Friday is a hilarious, contemporary musical update of the popular Disney movies of the same name.    It is also being adapted into a television movie for Disney, which will premiere in 2018.   An over-worked mother and her teenage daughter have one thing in common -- they don't relate to each other on anything.  When they wake up to discover they have magically switched bodies, each is forced to adapt to the other’s life, literally walking in each other’s shoes, for one freaky Friday. The mom’s wedding is Saturday, and the two must find a way to switch back – fast.  This is a delightfully entertaining new musical for anyone with a perfectly imperfect family.

This musical is part of Horizon’s 34th season of professional contemporary plays – smart, entertaining, positive plays that are new to Atlanta, in our intimate 172 seat theatre located in Inman Park/Little Five Points.
