Buck Creek Playhouse will hold open auditions for the BCP Playhouse Players youth production of 13:THE MUSICAL, with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown and book by Dan Elish and Robert Horn, on Monday and Tuesday, March 30 and 31, 2020, at 7 p.m. at the playhouse, 11150 Southeastern Avenue. Director Ben Jones is looking for a diverse group of youth ages 13 to 17, consisting of 8 leads, and an ensemble of 6 to 10 actors. All roles are available.
Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parent’s 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? 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 out!
Bring a resume and headshot, if available.
