Disney will come to life as the Dodge City High School present the musical Freaky Friday on Feb. 7-9 at 7 p.m. in the DCHS auditorium.

Directed by Kelly Knedler, Freaky Friday is based on the novel by Mary Rodgers which later became a feature film starring Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis.

According to a press release, Freaky Friday is the story of an overworked mother and her teenage daughter who magically swap bodies and they have just one day to put things right again.

It is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic.

The press release added that, 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.

Along with DCHS students, the crew is made up of Rachel Trombley, Assistant Director; Taylor Conant, Assistant Director; Erik Stone, Assistant Director; Tami Burkhart, Accompanist; Nikki Salem, Choreographer and Doug Trombley, Properties.

The Thursday, Feb. 7 show will be general admission only with tickets for $6. A family of five or more can purchase tickets for their entire family for only $20 per family.

On the Friday, Feb. 8 and Saturday, Feb. 9 shows, tickets are $8 and are reserved seating only. Reserved seating tickets will be available for purchase in advance on Wednesday, Jan. 30, in the DCHS Athletic Office.

DCHS will also be continuing its Adopt-A-Character program this year.

The adopt-a-character program began 22 years ago which coincides with the musical.

According to the press release, the program is designed to allow area individuals and businesses to help the Fine Arts in the USD 443 public school system along with giving back to those who adopt a character.
