It doesn’t take much acting for Brianna Cobos to play her part.

The senior actor will play Ellie in the Indian Players’ production of “Freaky Friday,” a story about a mother and daughter who spend a day in each other’s bodies to settle their differences. Cobos has said that she can relate to her character in a significant way — such as a lack of organizational skills.

‘’It’s not much of a reach to say that I’m a lot like Ellie,’’ Cobos said.

The production will be shown from Thursday through Monday at the high school auditorium. Admission will be $10 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens. The curtain goes up at 7 p.m. each night except Sunday (3 p.m.).

‘’Freaky friday is about the contrast between Ellie and her mother Katherine’s lives,’’ said Ross Lefort, an actor in the production. ‘’I think the play really highlights issues teenagers face in their daily lives.’’

The cast has said that their production of “Freaky Friday” will be unique and will not be like other versions of the story.

‘’This won’t be anything like the Disney version of “Freaky Friday,” Lefort said. ‘’I think there’s something that everybody can relate to.’’

Everyone is expecting the production to resonate well with the audience.

‘’You wouldn’t regret coming,’’ Cobos said.
