Casting Breakdowns:

  • Evan Goldman
    • Evan Goldman is facing a lot of big life changes: not only are his parents divorcing, but he’s also moving from New York City to Appleton, Indiana, right before his thirteenth birthday. Since Evan is Jewish, this is a big birthday, considering he will finally get to have his Bar Mitzvah. Evan is a good-hearted kid who gets wrapped up in his excitement over his party and makes some less-than-stellar choices. Though Evan is going through a lot and a bit high-strung, he’s smart and resourceful and ultimately does the right thing.
  • Patrice
    • Patrice has big dreams of getting out of her small town. She’s clever and a bit shy and marches to the beat of her own drum – but, unfortunately, these qualities make her an outcast at school. Patrice must have the most dramatic range, both as an actor and a singer, of any female in your show,
  • Archie
    • Patrice’s best friend. Archie walks on crutches due to his muscular dystrophy. He has a dark sense of humor and a general sense of urgency about living his life to the fullest, which includes going on a date with Kendra.
  • Brett Sampson
    • The stereotypical “cool guy” – he’s athletic, commands a squad of minions, and is “not quite as bright as a postage stamp.” In addition to not being very bright, Brett isn’t a very nice person, although he finds himself in a genuine emotional dilemma over his feelings for Kendra.
  • Eddie
    • Part of Brett’s entourage.
  • Malcolm
    • Part of Brett’s entourage.
  • Cassie
    • A cheerleader
  • Charlotte
    • A cheerleader.
  • Kendra
    • The most popular girl in school and is generally oblivious to how much attention other people are paying to her – she’s happy to work on her cheerleading and clueless when she’s included in the plots of others. Though, like Brett, Kendra may not be the smartest kid in school, unlike him, she doesn’t fall back on bullying and meanness – she’s genuinely nice, if somewhat shallow and a bit naïve.
  • Lucy
    • Kendra’s best friend. The quintessential “mean girl.” She’s manipulative, dishonest, insecure, and unapologetic – although Evan is nicknamed “The Brain,” Lucy is the one pulling all the strings at the junior high.
  • Molly
    • One of the girls at school and quick to defer to Lucy. She is happy to gossip about the drama, though she’s never quite in the middle of any of it.
  • Simon
    • Part of Brett’s entourage.
  • Richie
    • Part of Brett’s entourage.
  • Ensemble
    • The ensemble for 13 JR. is comprised of the rest of the kids at school (Teenagers, Boys, Girls, Kids, and Guys in the script).





Rehearsals will be Monday/Wednesday/Thursday from 5:30-7:30pm. Saturday Mornings from 10 am-3 pm. Sunday afternoons may be added closer to performance dates. Rehearsals will NOT be every day.
Tech week rehearsals will go until 9 pm.

May 9-19, 2024


Attendance is mandatory for rehearsals and performances. 

Conflicts are taken into consideration during casting as we want the strongest show we can have! Please note that any conflicts added after this sheet may not be honored.


Important Note: Regardless of the reason, excused or unexcused, if a cast member misses rehearsal (or is late for rehearsal or leaves rehearsal early), he/she may be cut from any scenes that were rehearsed that day. This is not a punishment, it is simply a natural consequence of the pace of our rehearsal schedule. New material is learned each week and then we move on. We may not have the time to back up and re-teach material for cast members who were not present.



Yearly Registration (Summer 2023 – Spring 2024): $40.00



If under the age of 18: One parent per family must volunteer to work 3  shifts per run of the show on show days, work on set/costumes, and many other things. If you choose not to volunteer, you can Buy Out of volunteering by paying $150. Volunteer spots will be available at the first meeting.


With a catchy rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, (ParadeThe Last Five YearsThe Bridges of Madison County) and a hilarious book by Tony winner Robert Horn (Tootsie, Shucked) and Dan Elish (13), 13 JR. tells a timeless story 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. Now the new kid at school, 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?!?

A true coming-of-age musical, 13 JR. is made especially for adolescents with a universal message about friendship and being true to yourself.
