13: The Musical/In Motion Dance Concert

hilarious, coming-of-age musical about discovering that "cool" is sometimes 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!

Don't miss both 13: The Musical and the spring dance concert: In Motion the next two weekends!
