Published DateMEREDITH — The Inter-Lakes Drama Club is hard at work rehearsing for "13", this spring's musical production, on May 4-5.
It's the story of Evan Goldman, who, at the age of 12-and-a-half, is on the verge of heading into his teenage years and becoming a man. Unexpectedly, his parents get divorced, and he moves from New York City to a small town in Indiana.
All he wants to do is make it through the school year, and invite the right kids from his new school to a big party celebrating his passage from boy to man. Easier said than done. The star quarterback is
threatening to ruin his life...his only real friend won't talk to him...the school geek is blackmailing
him...and someone is spreading the nastiest rumors.
It's a hilarious grown-up look at growing up, with an energetic rock score from a Tony Award winning composer, Jason Robert Brown.
ILHS Drama Advisor Pat Kelly says, "This is a modern musical, that people may not be familiar with, but the music is catchy, the characters are relatable, and most of us remember where we were in sixth grade." Featured in the production are Tim Johnson, Teghan Kelly, Gage Wheeler, Bridie O'Connell, Victoria Jollimore, Diana Reidy, John Findlay, Tori Webster, Katherine Miller, Megan Reid, Alaina Duchin, Jordan Bresse, Jessica Terrio, Danielle Bliss, Josh Lorden, Ryan Welch and Zach Dunn.
There are just two performances, Saturday night, May 4 at 7, and Sunday afternoon, May 5 at 2, at the Inter-Lakes Community Auditorium, Route 25 in Meredith. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for students.
