Wallingford teens act in Seattle's first professional staging of "13"

November 18th, 2011 · No Comments

Three Wallingford teens are acting in a coming-of-age production of a Broadway musical titled “13.” The teens are part of a group called Broadway Bound, in partnership with A Contemporary Theatre in Seattle. Jason Robert Brown’s “13” opened on Broadway in 2008, and featured the first all-teenage cast to appear on Broadway. Among the actors are Wallingford students Jeremy Berdin, Justine Cameron and Michael Kaczkowski.

Broadway Bound will also feature a solo concert by the composer Jason Robert Brown on December 8. He will be a special guest at the opening night performance on December 9, and will conduct a talk back with the audience after the performance.
