13 The Musical is a show which made its Broadway debut in 2008. Based on a story by Dan Elish and featuring music composed by Jason Robert Brown, it follows the adventures of a young boy called Evan Goldman.

After his parents decide to get divorced, he moves from Manhattan in New York City to a small town in Indiana. Once he arrives, he quickly makes friends with his neighbours, Patrice and Archie, and faces the challenges of adapting to his new life in Appleton and fitting in with his class mates.

The musical was such a hit in New York City, that it was adapted for the big screen and directed by Tamra Davis. She has directed many movies including the comedy Billy Madison and several episodes of the TV show High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. The movie version of 13 – which is now available to view on Netflix – features the actor Eli Golden who plays the role of Evan. Watch as he navigates his way through school and tries to build his group of pals as he approaches his 13th birthday. His ambition is to make his Bar Mitzvah – a Jewish coming-of-age ceremony – one to remember!

The songs – which are a memorable mix of Broadway-style anthems, rock and pop singalongs – help make 13 a fun, relatable film and is perfect viewing for anyone who has found it difficult to fit in.
