13 The Musical - Caradon Youth Theatre

Saturday June 15th

Saturday June 15th at 7:30pm
Burraton Community Centre Salatsh

Geek, Poser, Jock, Beauty Queen and Wannabe.
These may be labels that can last a lifetime, but perhaps cool is sometimes where we least expect it?!

Following a highly acclaimed run in Liskeard in February, Caradon Youth Theatre are hitting the road with the brilliant musical comedy 13.
This fast paced, funny and thought-provoking Broadway smash has an awesome rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, (Parade, Bridges of Madison County) and is a musical about fitting in - and standing out!
This fantastic high-energy production received great praise earlier in the year:

the young members of Caradon Youth Theatre have exceeded expectations again

the cast deliver their lines with impeccable comic timing - there were belly laughs from the audience

Ingenious use of a limited set and real professionalism from the young actors

their singing voices are seriously good and the physical comedy they created was wonderfully silly

The cast - just 13 of them - commanded the space

The creative team, director Nic Early, musical director Kate Rogers and choreographer Gemma Nicholson have enjoyed working with this exceptionally talented cast and are very excited to be taking the show on a mini tour.

this show has everything in it - great songs, dance routines, characters we identify with and lots of very funny moments - we are so proud of this dynamic cast says Nic

its a superb musical that doesnt come around very often, a great opportunity and a must see for anyone who is or ever was a teenager!

You can catch it at one of three Cornish venues, Bodmin College, St. Ives Theatre and the first stop is Burraton Community Centre, Grenfell Avenue in Saltash. This performance on Saturday 15 June at 7.30 PM - is promoted by the Sue Hooper Charitable Foundation

Well known in Saltash and Cornwall for supporting young performers and their pursuits in the arts: we are so grateful to Sue and her team for suggesting we come to Saltash with the show says director Nic Early its going to be a great atmosphere in this intimate venue - we cant wait.

Tickets £13 and £7 for under 18s are available now from the Sue Hooper Charitable Foundation by calling 01752 843073 - email:
