Click here for part 1,  here for part 2 and here for part 3.

Broadway actress Heidi Blickenstaff , 46. “It doesn’t often happen that the theater actor graduates to play the part they created to the film or TV version. Blickenstaff plays mom Katherine, and Cozi Zuehlsdorff (“Dolphin Tale”) portrays daughter Ellie. Their version comes with songs from Tom Kitt (music) and Brian Yorkey (lyrics), the Broadway team known for the Pulitzer Prize-winning “Next to Normal.” Blickenstaff said had been working with the Disney Theatrical family for almost a decade. Her first endeavor with Disney was The Little Mermaid on Broadway. She has performed concerts and readings for Disney Theatrical Productions, sung in group and solo shows for Disney Cruise Line.

Her first Broadway show was The Full Monty, but her break was [title of show], a 2004 musical about her professional struggles and those of friends. That intimate, one-act show made it to Broadway. “My career has sort of been a series of small miracles,” she said. She played Bea Bottom in the original Broadway production of Something Rotten! in 2015.

She originated her role in “Freaky Friday” in a version made by Disney Theatricals more than five years ago. Disney Channel saw the production in La Jolla, Calif., and wanted to make a film. She tested with several younger actresses and was sure she would be replaced by a TV actress.

 

Freaky Friday premiere’s  August 10 at 8pm EST, 7pm CST, and 8pm PST on the Disney Channel.
