Westchester Broadway Theatre Presents 13, 5/13-22

The Lighthouse Youth Theatre presents 13 at the Westchester Broadway Theatre in Elmsford.
Saturday, May 15 and 22, with a possible addition of June 12th. Served Lunch at 12 Noon and Show at 1:30 PM. 13 is a musical with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown and the book by Dan Elish and Robert Horn.

The story concerns the life of Evan Goldman, a thirteen year old boy, who has to move with his newly divorced mother from New York City to Appleton, Indiana, during the year of his Bar Mitzvah. Evan agonizes about fitting in with the "cool" kids and getting them to come to his celebration, while finding himself torn between them and Patrice, his quirky and not so popular new friend. Like kids everywhere, they suddenly have to survive classes, navigate cliques, hang with the right crowd and be "cool".

In 100 song-filled minutes, 13 is their provoking, engaging story, told with contagious energy and humor with all-teen performers and a teen band. This production of 13 is directed by John Fanelli, produced by Diane Bradsell, Choreography by David Arzberger and Musical direction by Michele DeAngelis.

The cast are all members of Protégé, the senior company of The Lighthouse Youth Theatre. Protégé is made up of the most talented and hard working teens who want to develop their skills in all aspects of the theatre. They are required to take acting, dance, music and other theatre-related classes to improve on all of their abilities. They are also responsible for being part of the production team, working on costumes, playbills, sets, props and all things theatre. It has been a great experience for the cast to learn also what it truly takes behind the scenes.
