ACU Theatre will present the Disney musical Freaky Friday at 7:30 p.m. April 16-18 and 24-25 in Fulks Theatre. Dinner will be served April 25, and a talkback session will follow the performance on April 24.

The show, based on the novel by Mary Rodgers and the Disney films, will be directed by theatre professor Kari Hatfield.

When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again before mom’s big wedding. Freaky Friday is a delightfully entertaining area premiere musical for anyone with a perfectly imperfect family. It 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.

Menu for the April 25 dinner will be Wedding Mix Salad, Grilled Pork Loin with Mustard Cream Sauce served with Whipped Sweet Potatoes, Crispy Brussel Sprouts with Parmesan and Balsamic, and Teenie Bopper Chocolate Cake or Carrot Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Icing.

The show is recommended for ages 10 and older. Tickets range from $15-$18 and may be purchased at Season tickets also are available for sale.
