The Whig Standard Review

“Growing up can be painful especially when your body and mind start changing the way you’re used to doing things. For many, that’s what starts happening at the age of 13. So be forewarned, you might start wincing at your own memories if you go see 13, the musical”

“Dylan Head and James Gibson-Bray know how to sell a song and have the voices to back it up.”

“Reid Cunningham was on stage most of the time and showed an incredible degree of poise”

“As Patrice, Savannah Raeburn-Gibson was so sweet and thoughtful” 

“As the jock, Payne Dunn was a nice balance between cockiness and unsureness when it came to the fairer sex.”

“I also liked Katelyn MacDonald, as the vamp who schemes to win Brett from her friend Kendra, playing with smiling charm by Heather Evans.”

“I liked the humour Daniel Powell brought to the role of Archie, which was perhaps the best-written part in the play.”

“A show that is ultimately charming because of its cast”

“3 Stars out of 5”
