Shorecrest High School will present the Jason Robert Brown musical "13" from May 3 to 13 at the Shoreline Center Auditorium, 18560 1st Ave. N.E. in Shoreline. (This is a new location for the play because of modernization of the Shorecrest theater.) The production is directed by Shorecrest drama teacher Andy Kidd.
The story concerns the life of 13-year-old Evan Goldman when his parents get divorced and he's forced to move from New York to a small town in Indiana, and the dilemma when the move conflicts with the celebration of his Bar Mitzvah. Evan Goldman just wants to make friends and survive the school year. Easier said than done. The star quarterback is threatening to ruin his life and his only friend, Patrice, won't talk to him. With an entertaining rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, "13" is a high-energy musical for all ages about discovering that "cool" is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it.
Show times are at 7:30 p.m. May 3 to 5 and May 9 to 12 and 2 p.m. on Sundays, May 6 and 13. Tickets are $10 when purchased in advance at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park Towne Centre, the Shorecrest High School (15343 25th Ave. N.E.) ASB window, or reserved by calling 206.393.6224.
