CHSS Presents 'Freaky Friday'

Brittany Webster

Charles Hays Secondary students have their dancing shoes on this weekend for the 2019 school musical Freaky Friday.

Based on the novel by Mary Rodgers, Freaky Friday looks at life in someone else's shoes and grade 12 student Corbin Basso says the musical shares a great lesson.

"There's a really good story behind it not to judge...another person, whether it's a family member or a friend, on the surface. There's some stuff that's hidden down below and in this story they get to experience it in each other's bodies and they get to grow a connection and a stronger bond by the end."

Basso says the crew has worked very hard since the beginning of the school year and he wants to invite everyone to come support their local drama nerds.

"I know there's a lot of things happening this weekend with Winterfest, with the Hometown Hockey. But the work that we put into the musical, the time we devote, it's a three month long process. We start in September, we end the first week in December, over 130 hours of preparing for the musical, so it's really great when we get to see all our families, friends, and community come to watch our play."

The first performance of Freaky Friday was last night at the Lester Centre of the Arts in Prince Rupert with two more shows tonight at 7:30 PM and tomorrow at 2 PM. Tickets can be purchased at the Lester Centre box office or at the door.
