Olivia will be making her return to the theater stage in the Center Repertory Company’s Production of Freaky Friday, as Ellie Blake.

“When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again before Mom’s big wedding. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. 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.

Freaky Friday features a book by Bridget Carpenter – the co-executive producer and writer on the beloved TV hits, “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood” – and music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey – the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of Next to Normal and If/Then.”

The play will run from May 25th – June 30th, 2018. Tickets can be purchased at the company’s official website.

Site Updates

While some sites do not update their themes often, the release of a new video means updates! The theme is now geared towards the release of Strange featuring multiple shots from the video.The Welcome Message GIF was changed in order to reflect the new video as well. The color scheme is notably brighter than A Way Out which was a darker video. I wanted the color scheme to reflect the fierce and inspiring concept of the video, so I utilized a brighter color for the font and other aspects of the layout.
