In this rocking musical, an uber-organized mother (Katherine) and her spontaneous teenage daughter (Ellie) magically swap bodies, and they have just one day to put things right. Masquerading as each other, they must deal with each other’s lives (including impending marriage and teenage romance) and work together to solve the mystery of how to break the spell. By spending a day in each other’s shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another in a way they never could have imagined. In the end, both learn the true power of love and the strength of the bond between a mother and daughter in this heartfelt and hilarious adaptation.
Director Lowry Browning taps into her professional theater experience in Houston, Texas, where she joined Actors’ Equity (a union for professional actors and stage managers). She challenges the student cast, several of whom express interest in a future career in theater and/or music, to ‘be the best that they can be’. Ms. Browning has brought in local pianist and music director Garry Estep with his professional experience in New York and Nashville to provide the music as well as coach the singers. Mimi McDonnell teaches the choreography and Kathy Vawter designs the costumes and props, while parents work with the cast in building sets.
Ms. Browning states the following about the cast and show: “The actors and crew work long hours to perform a terrific show. They are dedicated to their craft and it shows.”
So, come show your support of the student singers and actors here in The Dalles, and enjoy a great show! For more information, contact Ms. Browning at email@example.com.
