AUDITION CALL

 

The cast is comprised entirely of teenagers, but the stories that come to life here are ageless, the emotions they explore timeless, the laughter and the memories they provide priceless.

MAY 20 & 21, 6:30PM

STRAND THEATRE  217 E. Superior, Alma

Show Dates : September 6, 7, 8, 9, 2018   Questions: Call 989-576-0863

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, 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 simpleminded 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?!?

Rehearsals will run throughout the summer.  Starting out just one or two days a week, working on music and choreography, and then adding more as we get into August.  We are willing to work with summer vacation schedules or any other conflicts you may have.

After May 1st you may call me at 989-576-0863 to request an audition packet.
