13 - A NEW MUSICAL - A grown up story about growing up
Sydney’s freshest independent musical theatre company Birdie Productions now steps up the energy with the cultish hit teen musical:
13 – the first ever Broadway show to feature an all-child cast and band. Evan Goldman has it all: He's popular, has the ‘perfect’ family and lives in the world’s greatest city — New York. But when his parents get divorced, he's forced to move with his Mum to small-town Appleton, Indiana.
Uprooted from his old life, he must manoeuver his way through the minefield of high school to become part of the ‘in’ crowd. With wit and searing honesty, 13 is a hilarious, high-energy musical for all ages. To book go to Birdie Productions
