We all love the movie. Now, you can experience the new musical version of “Freaky Friday” right here in Ogden at The Ziegfeld Theater. The musical — by Pulitzer Prize-winning composers Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey and featuring a book by Bridget Carpenter, co-producer and writer of the TV hits “Parenthood” and “Friday Night Lights” — opens on Friday, Feb. 19, and runs until March 13. Based on the story of an overworked mother and her teenage daughter who magically swap bodies and end up coming to a new appreciation of one another’s struggles, “Freaky Friday” is “a heartfelt, comedic and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic.”
The Ziegfeld Theater, 3934 Washington Blvd., Feb. 19-March 13, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Saturday matinees at 2 p.m., $15-$19, zigarts.com
