Roosevelt Intermediate School is proud to present this year’s spring musical, 13 (The Musical).
Based on the book by Dan Elish and Robert Horn, 13 is a grown-up story about growing up!
Evan Goldman (played by Duncan Cook) is two months from turning 13 years old, living happily in New York City, when his world is turned upside down by his parents’ divorce and now he is forced to move to a small town in the Midwest.
Facing a new life in a new place of customs and culture,
Evan has to make choices about who he wants to be versus who he really is, make
new friends and survive the school year. Easier said than done.
Brett (Nicholas Guerriero), the star quarterback, is threatening to ruin his life and his only friend, Patrice (Kimmi Zimmermann), won’t talk to him. The school freak, Archie (Julian Mazzola), sees an opportunity for blackmail and Lucy (Lauren Singer) is spreading the nastiest rumors. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Awarding-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, 13 is a hilarious, high energy musical for all ages about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it.
Cast and crew of 73 members, directed by Kimberly Jonny will be performing at Roosevelt Intermediate School, located at 301 Clark Street, Westfield. Tickets for 13 are on sale now. The performances are: Friday, March 7th at 7:30 pm, Saturday, March 8th at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 9th at 2:00 pm. Cost of tickets are: $8 in advance, $10 at the door.
