The Media Theatre’s
Summer 2021 Teen Camp Musical Experience is
The Broadway Musical
An adaptation of the classic novel and beloved films, Freaky Friday follows teenager Ellie Blake and her mother, Katherine, on the weirdest, strangest, craziest, freakiest day of their whole lives. Try as they might, Katherine and Ellie just can’t seem to understand each other: Ellie wants her mom to stop trying to change her, while Katherine wants her daughter to be the best version of herself that she can be. On a fateful Friday, the day before Katherine’s wedding, something magical occurs when mother and daughter swap bodies. Now, both will have to一literally一spend a day walking in each other’s shoes, learning about each other and the struggles each goes through and forging a new mother-daughter relationship in this hilarious, energetic, and moving musical comedy.
Cost is $900 for two weeks of rehearsal and two weekends of performance questions?: 610-891-0100
In the wake of COVID-19 we have made a few changes and adjustments.
CAMPERS WILL NEED TO BE DROPPED OFF AT THE DOOR; PARENTS ARE TO REMAIN OUTSIDE OR IN THEIR CAR; PRIOR TO ENTERING THE BUILDING, CAMPERS WILL HAVE THEIR TEMPERATURE TAKEN. ALL STAFF MEMBERS WILL ALSO HAVE TEMPERATURES TAKEN DAILY. THOSE WITH A TEMPERATURE AT OR ABOVE 100 WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE PREMISES IMMEDIATELY FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL OTHERS. PICK-UP AFTER CAMP IS SIMILAR–PARENTS REMAIN OUTSIDE THE BUILDING PREFERABLY IN THEIR VEHICLE. CAMPERS WILL COME TO YOU.
ALL REHEARSALS ARE CLOSED, AND THE LOBBY AREA AND CRYSTAL ROOM AREA WILL ALSO BE CLOSED DURING REHEARSALS TO THOSE NOT IN OR WORKING ON THE PRODUCTION. WE WILL ASK CAMPERS TO MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. THE PRODUCTION WILL BE DIRECTED AND CHOREOGRAPHED WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING IN MIND.
WE WILL HAVE SANITIZERS NEAR AND IN THE RESTROOMS. WE WILL HAVE SIX-FOOT MARKERS ON THE LOBBY FLOOR AND IN THEATRE AISLES. THE STAGE WILL HAVE SIX 8-FOOT CIRCUMFERENCE CIRCLES PAINTED ON STAGE FLOOR, TO BE USED AS ‘HOME AREAS’ FOR CAMPERS WHEN NOT BEING USED IN A SCENE OR SONG. AREAS CAMPERS USE, AND RESTROOMS, WILL BE DISINFECTED FOLLOWING OUR DAYTIME CAMP MEDIA THEATRE.
The Media Theatre will do everything possible, according to CDC and PA guidelines to ensure the theatre is a ‘safe’ space for all involved. Our stage will be prepped and disinfected, eight shields for business operation (including at the camp concession stand), and a supply of face masks. We will also have sanitizing stations set up around the theatre. Thanks, and have a great summer!
