Evan Goldman is about to turn thirteen, and he can’t wait. His life seems full of possibilities — that is, until his parents get divorced, and he is forced to move with his mum from big-city New York to podunk Appleton, Indiana. If Evan can’t get the coolest kids to come to his bar mitzvah, how is he going to survive the school year, not to mention, the rest of his life?

As Evan navigates the world of cool kids and nerds, jocks and cheerleaders, first kisses and heartbreak, he comes to understand “What it Means to Be a Friend.” With a bright, catchy pop score from Jason Robert Brown, equal doses of humour and pathos,  13 is irresistible to grown ups and almost-grown ups alike.

Casting age for this production is 10 – 17 years.


Group auditions will be held on Sunday 4 August, 10 am to 2pm at the MBTC venue. This will include group activities, script reading, vocal work/audition and movement exercises. All participants are required to stay for the duration of the audition to receive maximum benefits from the process.

No experience is required, all performance levels are encouraged and will be catered to accordingly, our goal is for everyone to have a fun experience.

No preparation is necessary but ensure that dance-appropriate clothing and footwear is worn. Please bring a water bottle.
