Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabee. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, 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 simple minded 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?!?
Interested actors are asked to prepare a monologue (not to exceed two minutes) and a musical theatre song of their choice. Please prepare the entire song and bring sheet music in appropriate key. Rehearsals and performances will take place at NCTC located at 743 North Mountain Road in Newington. To sign up for an audition, visit www.NCTCArts.org.
