Seeking a multi-ethnic cast of students in grades 7-12.

Auditions will be an open call both days, and will consist of singing a prepared 32-bar selection of a song from a Broadway Musical and the style of the show. No songs from the show, please. An accompanist will be provided. No auditions with a CD backing track will be allowed. Acapella auditions are discouraged, but not prohibited.

Please Provide: Sheet Music for you audition, and resumes are suggested, if available. Please bring a current photo—this can be a professional headshot, but a current school photo works just as well. Come dressed to move, as there will be a dance/movement exercise. Formal dance training is NOT a requirement! There may be cold readings from the script as well.

Rehearsals will begin with a cast and family meeting in early November.
The typical weekly rehearsal schedule will be Sunday through Thursday night from 7 – 10pm. Conflicts with the schedule must be kept to an absolute minimum during the rehearsal process. No conflicts will be accepted during dress / tech week (1/10 – 1/14).

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, Honeymoon in Vegas), 13 is a musical about fitting in - and standing out! 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?!
