ALLEY THEATER – Designer Talk followed by the play Freaky Friday

Sunday June 4th – 1:30 pm

COST: $25 – ($31 if you would like a box lunch)…………check due by Sunday, May 21


At 1:30 p.m., before the Sunday matinee performance, we will attend a discussion with the production’s creative team to give us a behind-the-scenes look at the design process. These pre-show talks offer audiences an exclusive opportunity to ask questions about the designer’s work and learn how they brought the script to life. Designer Talks will take place in the Texas Room.

FREAKY FRIDAY, a new musical  based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and hit Walt Disney films, is a hilarious, contemporary update of an American classic that follows an overworked mother and teenage daughter on a wild journey after magically swapping bodies. The musical is a sure-fire hit for the whole family.  This is a captioned and audio described performance.

For those of you who wish to eat a box lunch, Ana will provide one for you for $6. We will gather after the 11:15 service to eat and then leave for the Alley Theater at 12:45.  If you wish to eat elsewhere, please be at the church by 12:30. We will return to Grace by 5 pm.
