’13: The Musical’ opens at Young Actors Theatre

Young Actors Theatre, 609 Glenview Drive, will open “13: The Musical,” a story about Evan Goldman, a young New Yorker who is preparing for his Bar Mitzvah at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 24. Evan’s world is turned upside down when his mom forces an unexpected move to Indiana, and he must navigate a new social scene and acceptance in a very small town. Originally produced on Broadway in 2008, the show was and still is the only production with an all-teenager cast and band. In Tallahassee, Young Actors students have been hard at work in rehearsals, grappling with the timeless issues of adolescence – many that they are experiencing in real-time at school and online. “13: The Musical” runs at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 24 – April 2. Tickets are $15-$25 and can be purchased at youngactorstheatre.com.
