The musical version of the popular 2001 film has a score by Laurence O'Keefe (Bat Boy: The Musical) and Nell Benjamin (Sarah, Plain and Tall) with a book by Heather Hach (the film "Freaky Friday"). Tony Award-winning choreographer Jerry Mitchell made his directorial debut with the musical, which he also choreographed.

An official air date has not been announced.
