That is until his parents get divorced and he's forced to move with his Mom… to Indiana.  Uprooted from his old life, he has to make new friends and somehow manoeuvre his way through the minefield of High School to become part of the "in-crowd". The cast is comprised entirely of teenagers, but the stories that come to life are ageless, the emotions they explore timeless, the laughter and the memories they provide priceless.  Featuring an explosive score by Tony Award winning composer Jason Robert Brown, 13, A New Musical is about fitting in and standing out.
