Milpitas has expanded its longtime theatre program to welcome performers of all ages and offer a wider variety of productions. Performances are held in the Milpitas Community Center auditorium. Shows are selected by a committee that includes participants, volunteers and residents who enjoy theatre. The City contracts with theatre professionals to direct, choreograph and provide vocal direction for our productions. We welcome resumes from interested, qualified individuals. Performers of all abilities are welcome to audition. Those who are cast pay a participation fee that helps offset the costs of the production.
Milpitas Community Theatre proudly presents Freaky Friday!
When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. 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.
Auditions will be held on Monday, April 25 and Wednesday, April 27 from 4-6:30 p.m. at the Milpitas Community Center. Participants must be 8 years old or older to audition and be cast in the show.
Please fill out the entire Cast Information Sheet and Photo Video Release Waiver, with parent signatures, and bring the completed forms along with payment to auditions.
