Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, (Parade, The Last Five Years, The Bridges of Madison County) 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out! Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain… or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!? The stories that come to life here are ageless, the emotions they explore timeless, the laughter and the memories they provide priceless.

This production will have 4 youth directors who will direct, choreograph, and produce this show: Isabelle Siegel, Campbell Tosney, Eric Robitaille, and Rebecca Corrado. They will be mentored and guided by adult directors/producers Brendan Joel Bartlett, Julie Galorenzo, and Anthony Bevilacqua. Anthony will also serve as the production music director.
