New Broadway musical examines growing up

The new Broadway musical “13” will grace the stage at the Woodland Opera House, opening Friday, April 20, and continuing Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through May 13. There will be an additional matinee at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 5.

When his parents get divorced and he’s forced to move from New York to a small town in Indiana, Evan Goldman just wants to make friends and survive the school year. That’s easier said than done … the star quarterback is threatening to ruin his life, his only friend won’t talk to him, the school freak sees an opportunity for blackmail and someone is spreading nasty rumors.

With a rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, “13” is a hilarious, high-energy musical about discovering that cool is where you find it … and sometimes where you least expect it.

The opera house cast of “13” had the rare opportunity to receive training from the show’s composer, Jason Robert Brown. Brown has been hailed as “one of Broadway’s smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim” (Philadelphia Inquirer), and his “extraordinary, jubilant theater music” (Chicago Tribune) has been heard all over the world, whether in one of the hundreds of productions of his musicals every year or in his own incendiary live performances.

Brown is the composer and lyricist of the musical, “The Last Five Years,” and won a 1999 Tony Award for his score to “Parade.” Woodland Opera House “13” cast members were coached by Brown during a master class March 3 at the Woodland Opera House.

The cast includes Tony Cellucci, Devin DeGeyter, Abby Miles, Peter DeBello, McKinley Carlisle, Emma Black, Emily Miller, Devon Hayakawa, Chloe Deamer, Tomas Eredia, Cole Yambrovich, Quentin Carbajal and Aditya Tuladhar.

The show is directed by Amy Shuman with musical direction by James Glica-Hernandez and choreography by Stephen Hatcher.

Reserved-seat tickets are $25 general, $23 for seniors and students and $12 for youths and children 17 and under. Balcony tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children. Group discounts are available.
