Auditions - Freaky Friday The Musical
Freaky Friday Production Update:
At our recent board meeting, the RTAA board of directors made the difficult yet necessary decision to postpone the production of Freaky Friday in order to stay in compliance with current COVID-19 guidelines. The board is dedicated to following all guidelines from the state and county, and feels it would not be right to move forward with a mainstage production at this time.
Currently, the theatre is focused on running our summer camps, including our summer camp production of Matilda. We will also be moving forward with our “Afterschool Camps” in August of Aladdin Jr. for Youth and Little Ones.
We respect that this is a difficult time for everyone. Please know that we are determined to keep theatre alive at RTAA in whatever way we are allowed to in the current environment. I am so sorry that we have to temporarily suspend this project. It’s not what any of us wanted, but it is the right thing to do at this time.
We are very excited to move Freaky Friday to next season’s mainstage time slot in 2021. We sincerely hope that by then we won’t be under restrictions and we’ll be able to do the show justice.
Again, please know how sorry we are to deliver this news. We hope you all are staying safe and healthy.
Megan Hoyt, Executive Director/Board President
