A musical which sees a 12-year-old relocating from The Big Apple comes to The Deco Theatre in Northampton on Saturday, July 2.

A total of 21 youngsters from across the county appear in 13 The Musical, which starts at 6.30pm.

It sees 12-year-old Evan Goldman having to relocate from his home town New York to small-town Indiana, due to his father’s recent affair with a stewardess.

Evan faces the challenge of fitting in to his new school after his parents have split up while trying to make lots of new friends that will come to his Bar Mitzvah party as he turns 13.

It follows the decisions and challenges 13 year olds have to make as well as challenging some of the social statuses that rule the school yard such as geek, wannabe, loser, jock and the plastics.

Evan will also decide whether he should stand out from the crowd or be a part of it.

Tickets for the show are available from the box office on 01604 622749. They are priced at £10 each. They can also be bought by visiting where more details are available.
