Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable pop-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’s life has just gone to hell. Due to his parents’ divorce, he is forced from his life and his friends in New York City and moved to the lamest place in the world: Appleton, Indiana. To make matters worse – it’s only a few months before his 13th birthday, and his bar mitzvah – the most important party of his life where he officially becomes a man. All he needs is for the cool kids to come to his party – but small-town kids are a little bit different from the big city dwellers Evan knows, and that might be a little bit more difficult than expected.

Eternal Theatre Collective brings “13” to life with a cast, band, and crew of entirely youth!

Tickets: $17-$22 | Location: Red Gate Revue Stage, Granville Island | Website

Drowsy Chaperone at Theatre Under the Stars

The Drowsy Chaperone is a Canadian musical masterpiece

Bursting with show-stopping song and dance – this Canadian musical parody & five-time Tony Award winner whisks audiences away on a Jazz Age journey of love, laughter, and libation.

Alone in his modest, one-bedroom apartment, a musical theatre fan puts on his favourite cast recording. As the record spins, the colourful & chaotic characters of a fictitious 1928 musical spring to life – filling his living room with all manner of movie stars, gangsters, divas, and more.

Theatre Under the Stars is a Vancouver staple for musical theatre and fun summer evenings. Bring a blanket and a picnic, and sit on the hill before the show to enjoy the beauty of Stanley Park!

Tickets: $20-$50 | Location: Malkin Bowl, Stanley Park | Website
