Freaky Friday: The Musical, based on the new Disney Channel original movie, will be available for licensing August 10—the day the TV film debuts. The stage licensing will be available worldwide through Music Theatre International.
The one-act musical features all of the songs from the Disney Channel Original Movie, including the 2018 Disney Channel summer anthem, “Go!”
Based on the 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and the film adaptations it inspired, Freaky Friday features a book by Bridget Carpenter and music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey. The musical was first developed through Disney Theatrical Productions and premiered at Washington, D.C.'s Signature Theatre in 2016.
“It has been a thrill to see Freaky Friday’s journey that began with Mary Rodgers’ original novel and subsequent films, to the development of the original stage musical production and our first-time collaboration with the Disney Channel for its worldwide television premiere,” said Disney Theatrical Productions President and Producer Thomas Schumacher. “This contemporary show features opportunities for schools to cast a diverse ensemble led by two extraordinary female leading roles. I’m excited to see students breathe life into these wonderful characters and make this story their own.”
