13 the Musical
In the Spotlight
Music & Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, Book By Dan Elish & Robert Horn
"COOL is sometime where we least expect it! "
Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County) 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out! Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain... or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!?

FROM OUR VISITORS
The King of the Chimney Sweeps will forever remain transfixed in my memory. Selma Arts Center should be historically memorialized just based on the talent alone not to mention its captivating architecture and preeminent position as a performing arts center in Central California. Five stars.
I saw Young Frankenstein. It was hilarious and the cast did an excellent job. I will go back again. I hope they have some more comedy, but I'm sure that I will enjoy whatever they decide to run. Thank you to the cast. It's always nice to leave a comedy with sore jaws from smiling and laughing.
Nice, small, intimate venue. Well put together and fun. Something I hope the community supports and uses it to grow their art and entertainment options. Had dinner at George's in downtown a block away. Fun, inexpensive date night.
