The cast of 13. Photo Credit: Thomas GiroirIn the tradition of "Glee," Clueless and Mean Girls comes 13, a new
musical about the one thing we never stop doing - growing up. With a
blast of high voltage energy, an all-teen cast navigates the ups and
downs of turning 13.
Fresh from New York City, the new kid in town is
desperate to fit in, survive middle school and get all the "cool kids"
to attend his impending bar mitzvah. Every day he faces a new teen
trauma: cell phones and rumors, first dates and first kisses, cliques,
clashes and crushes. Featuring a brightly infectious rock score from
Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, 13 is a fresh, funny and
touching rites of passage story that all ages can relate to.
Performance dates and times are as follows:
Friday, April 29 at 7 pm; Saturday, April 30 at 2 pm & 7 pm; Sunday, May
1 at 2 pm; Friday, May 6 at 7 pm; Saturday, May 7 at 2 pm & 7 pm;
Sunday, May 8 at 2 pm; Friday, May 13 at 7 pm; Saturday, May 14 at 2 pm
& 7 pm and Sunday, May 15 at 2 pm.
Tickets are $18 for Adults & $13 for Seniors & Students 17 and under and
are available online at www.hartfordchildrenstheatre.org. Call
