SYNOPSIS

Geek.  Poser.  Jock.  Beauty Queen.  Wannabe.  These are the labels that can last a lifetime.  With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years, & Bridges of Madison County), 13 is a musical about fitting in - and standing out1

Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce.  Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order.  Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain... or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!?
