Newly launched musical theatre company Theatrical presents the Victorian premiere of Freaky Friday, based on the beloved 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, including the 2003 film starring Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis.

The Chapel Off Chapel production features music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of If/THEN and Next to Normal.Freaky Friday is a modern spin on the ‘70s novel, where a mother and daughter swap bodies and experience each other’s lives firsthand, for a day.

Tickets are on sale now via theatrical.com.au. Director Bronte Regos Thiele is staging the production in the present day, splitting the stage between an ordered household, a homely suburban Chicago and the chaos of adolescent relationships at school.

With Choreography by accomplished Broadway dancer and choreographer Bridie Clark (Jazz on the Westside, Colors of Columbia), Theatrical’s Freaky Friday will delight Melbourne audiences with some TikTok-inspired dance numbers, colourful sets and costumes, catchy tunes and an energetic cast of some of Melbourne’s best-emerging performers.

Theatrical is a not-for-profit and registered charity from Executive Producer Andrew Gyopar (If/THEN, Little Women), an independent musical theatre company with a mission to provide opportunities for disadvantaged and underrepresented groups who might not otherwise have access to participate in musical theatre.

Andrew started his career as a presenter and producer on Triple R, going on to produce radio and TV as well as a slew of major musicals. Andrew led a range of community arts and media organisations (Southern FM, Community Broadcasting Association of Victoria) before launching Theatrical.

The company has launched with a dedicated Theatrical Community Shed (Victorian Men’s Shed Association member), welcoming people of all gender identities, ability and ages. The program seeks to offer enriching training opportunities for those that may have not yet have had the privilege of access to theatre skills training.

“Theatrical believes that community-made performing arts is a great way to bring people together. To share skills, socialise and to promote positive mental health,” says Andrew Gyopar.

Theatrical Community Shed is a place for non-performers to experience the joy of being part of a musical theatre production. Theatrical’s Community Engagement Manager Megan D’Souza says it allows people to use their skills, or learn new skills, to create part of the show and then get to see their work up on stage, meeting a whole lot of new people during the process.

“We have carpenters, fashion designers, interior designers, teachers and administrators who would never have considered themselves as theatre people before they got involved with Theatrical Community Shed. Not everyone can afford singing and dancing lessons and not everyone wants to be on stage in the spotlight. Theatrical Community Shed enables us to have a much more diverse community involved in creating musical theatre,” says Megan D’Souza.

“We are always expanding what true inclusion and representation can mean. This is a work in progress,” says Andrew Gyopar.

Theatrical will run workshops this year for those who may not have had access to musical theatre, aimed at helping underrepresented groups of people build their skills and confidence in many disciplines of theatre production.

About Theatrical:
Theatrical exists to make great theatre and also to be an inclusive space for people to meet and have fun creating together. Theatrical supports both new and experienced theatre people to express their creativity and develop their artistry.

Theatrical runs workshops throughout the year in the Theatrical Community Shed to help people build skills and confidence in many disciplines of theatre production.
