Teens: Apply to Behind the Scenes, Covering "13: The Musical"
Arts Angle Vantage is taking participants in its next workshop behind the scenes of JCC CenterStage's "13: The Musical." This is a free opportunity that will give participants insights into the American musical history and the local theater landscape and allow conversations with CenterStage artists as well as tickets to the opening night performance.
“13: The Musical” — described as “brash new musical about growing up geeky” by New York Times critic Ben Brantley during its 2008 Broadway premiere — follows adolescent Evan Goldman whose family moves from New York City to small town Indiana. There Evan discovers cool kids and nerds, jocks and cheerleaders, first kisses and heartbreak all to a score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (“Parade,” “The Last Five Years,” “The Bridges of Madison County,” “Mr. Saturday Night”).
