Stages To Tackle “13”

Gabe Guimaraes, Eileen Shortall, Ian Hubbard, Ava Bianchi, Ailie Kinnier, Ethan Suhr and Silas Jones in “13.”

In 2008, “13” premiered on Broadway as the first of its kind to be performed by an all-teenage cast. This weekend, Stages, a Children’s Theatre Workshop will also rise up to the challenge.

Directed by Helene Leonard, the cult teenage musical starring 22 young actors follows the story of 12-year-old Evan Goldman, who is forced to move from Manhattan to a small town in Indiana, where he struggles to be popular and survive his first year in a new school.

“Harder than it seems: he soon learns that ‘cool’ is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it,” according to a press release. “Please join us for this hilarious, high-energy, coming-of-age musical for anyone who is 13, has been 13, or will be 13!”

Performances will be held on Saturday, April 14, at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 15, at 2 p.m. at Bay Street Theater, located at 1 Bay Street in Sag Harbor. Tickets are $15. For more information, please call (631) 329-1420 or visit
