The Mauldin Theatre Company is presenting its first theatrical production, Disney’s Freaky Friday! When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Disney’s 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.
Freaky Friday will run May 7-9 and May 14-16 at the Mauldin Cultural Center. Tickets are $15 plus processing fees and can be bought online at http://our.show/mauldincultural/freaky-friday or by phone at 864.335.4862.
Due to COVID-19, capacity for all indoor events at the Mauldin Cultural Center are currently limited to 50%. All guests and crew are required to wear masks, and temperature checks will be conducted at the door. The Cultural Center’s COVID-19 policies can be found online at mauldinculturalcenter.org/covid-19.
This production follows the recently completed run of Mauldin Youth Theatre’s production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda JR. which was met with excitement from each audience. Following Freaky Friday, the newly established MCC Shakes! program will produce its first “Shakespeare in the park”-style show, the comedy Twelfth Night. This show will be performed May 21-23 at the Cultural Center’s outdoor amphitheater and is free for all to enjoy – bring your friends, family, and lawn chairs and enjoy this Shakespearean classic!
Later in the summer, the Cultural Center will host its Theatre Fundraising Dinner on June 3, 2021. The Mauldin Youth Theatre and the Mauldin Theatre Company exist because of the support from the community. The Cultural team wants to continue expanding and improving local theatre programming, and you can help. More information is available at mauldinculturalcenter.org/theatre-fundraiser; come enjoy dinner and entertainment all while supporting your local arts!
The fall will bring more shows, including: In the Mood, a big band music revue performed by the Mauldin Theatre Company in August; the Mauldin Youth Theatre’s production of Sister Act, JR. in November; and in December, another MTC music revue, Hooray for Holidays, celebrating holidays throughout the year.
