Freaky Friday!

Join us March 6th & 7th at 7:00 p.m., and March 8th at 2:00 p.m. for the Assumption Knight Players musical production of Freaky Friday!

When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. 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.

Reserved seating on sale NOW at www.showtix4u.com/events/78. General admission tickets available at the door!
