The Musical Theatre of Anthem has scheduled two upcoming shows — “13” and “Godspell.”
A musical about fitting in and standing out, “13” has a rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown. It hits the stage April 29 to May 8.
In the musical, Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents’ divorce. Surrounded by an array of simple-minded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order.
The cast is comprised of award winners and nominees ages 12 to 15. Performances are Thursday to Sunday at the Musical Theatre of Anthem’s performance space, 42201 N. 41st Drive, Suite B100, Anthem.
“Godspell” is scheduled for April 8 to April 18 at the MTA. It features a parade of beloved songs like “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well” and “By My Side.”
In the musical, a small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage.
The cast includes award winners and nominees from the ages of 15 through adults. Performances are Thursdays to Sundays at MTA, 42201 N. 41st Drive, Suite B100, Anthem. See the website for performance times. Tickets are $13 to $19.
