Over the next several months, I’m going to be able to tell you lots of things about the movie of “13” that we’re currently rehearsing in Toronto. I’ll be able to tell you what songs we kept and how many new ones I added, I’ll be able to talk about how the characters have evolved since Dan Elish and I first created them seventeen years ago, share some of Robert Horn’s new hysterical dialogue, I’ll be able to show you clips of the amazing choreography, I’ll be able to introduce you to our fantastic director, all of that. It’s going to be the most fun thing ever after this year of blech.

Tonight, I can only tell you one thing: we have a cast filled with fourteen remarkable, ridiculous, unexpected, and altogether wonderful kids, and I can’t wait for you to see and hear them do what they do. Here’s their names with the role they’re playing:

EVAN: Eli Golden
PATRICE: Gabriella Uhl
LUCY: Frankie McNellis
KENDRA: Lindsey Blackwell
ARCHIE: Jonathan Lengel
EDDIE: Ramon Reed
MALCOLM: Nolen Dubuc
CARLOS: Luke Islam
CASSIE: Shechinah Mpumlwana
MOLLY: Kayleigh Cerezo
ZEE: Wyatt Moss
KC: Liam Wignall
CHARLOTTE: Khiyla Aynne

I am so excited for all of my 13iacs from the past thirteen years to welcome these new kids into the fold. This show has been the most surprising and glorious family for so much of my life, and I’m unbelievably grateful.
