Music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown

Directed by Libby Oberlin

Sonoma Arts Live is proud to announce auditions for their Teens ‘N Training (TNT) production of 13: A Coming-of-Age Musical. Don't let the age in the title fool you! Similar to shows like The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee or You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, 13 is meant to be performed by older teens and young adults, giving a little wisdom to some big issues that we cal all relate to.

13 is a hilarious musical about discovering that "cool" is sometimes where we least expect it. Geek, poser, jock, beauty queen, wannabe - these are the labels that can last a lifetime. Set in 1993, with an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out! Libby Oberlin directs her 6th show for TNT, providing opportunities for young people to immerse themselves in meaningful theater, while collaborating with local teens and professionals.
