“13” opened on Broadway in 2008 and ran for 137 performances. The show follows 12-year-old Evan Goldman as he is about to turn 13. When his parents get divorced and he’s forced to move from New York to a small town in Indiana, Evan just wants to make friends and survive the school year. Easier said than done. The star quarterback is threatening to ruin his life and his only friend, Patrice, won’t talk to him. The school freak sees an opportunity for blackmail and someone is spreading the nastiest rumors.

The local cast is Joshua Hoffman, Delaney Warren, Spencer Cassling, Kortney Carmody, Betsy Johnson, Dakota Panczak, Cheyenne Baragiola, Sierra Willis, Madison Laski, Nic Renick, Tony Tardibuono and McKinley Warren.

The Big Bear Theatre Project calls “13” a hilarious, high-energy musical for all ages about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it. The ensemble nurtures new talent and is commited to cultivating the next generation of theatre artists.
