A new musical adaptation of the classic novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films.
This version is based on the Original run of the show for the 2016 Production at Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA.
The show is orchestrated for 2 keyboards with Keyboard 1 being the Conductor. Both books have a fair amount of complex programming. KeyboardTEK is offering the Original Programming by Randy Cohen so the sounds you hear on the cast album are the sounds your keyboardists will be playing. Keyboard 1/Conductor consists mostly of Acoustic and Electric Piano and Synth sounds. This book does require a fairly advanced player to play.
Keyboard 2 has even more programming and more patch changes and also consists of Electric Piano and synth sounds with some percussion throughout. This book also requires a fairly advanced player with experience playing shows with programming.
KeyboardTEK worked with Randy and Michael Starobin to recreate the original sounds in Mainstage as designed by the original music team.

The new musical, Freaky Friday, based on the beloved 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films (and developed by Disney Theatrical Productions expressly for licensing to theatres), features a book by Bridget Carpenter – the co-executive producer and writer on the beloved TV hits, “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood” – and music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey – the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of Next to Normal and If/Then.
When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, 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.
