13: The Musical is the first and only Broadway musical to have an all teenager cast and band in the history of Broadway. The musical premiered on January 7, 2007 at The Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, California and ran through February 18, 2007. The production was directed by Todd Graff, with choreography by Michele Lynch. This production received a nomination for the 2007 LA Stage Alliance Ovation Awards, World Premiere Musical. The musical opened on Broadway at the Bernad B. Jacobs Theatre on September 16, 2008 in previews, with an official opening on October 5, 2008 and closed on January 2009 after 105 performances and 22 previews. The production received one Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Lyrics by Brown. 13: The Musical has been performed worldwide, in multiple countries, which include Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, Australia, Israel and Belgium. In 2014, CBS Films announced that they intend to produce a film adaption of the musical. The screenplay is set to be written by Bert V. Royal, with producers Laurence Mark, Bob Boyett and executive producer, David Blackman. Jason Robert Brown is expected to oversee the adaptation’s music and lyrics.

This Redhouse production will feature many professional actors as well as students from our Summer Theatrical Institute.
