13 Going on 30 The Musical

Based on the revolution studio motion picture.

13 GOING ON 30 THE MUSICAL is a stage reimaging of the beloved 2004 hit romantic comedy film that starred Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo. It follows the story of Jenna Rink, an adorably awkward 13-year-old girl who wishes she could skip over the horrors of middle school.

It is adapted for the stage by the film’s original screenplay writers, Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa, with music and lyrics by Michael Weiner and Alan Zachary (First Date (Broadway), and direction by Andy Fickman (Heathers, She’s The Man).

What does Jenna Rink want for her birthday? That’s easy. At thirteen years old, she wants one thing only – to be thirty, flirty and thriving. As she blows out her birthday candles, she magically wakes up seventeen years later: a thirty-year-old fashion magazine editor with a life that seems to be perfect. As she unravels the mystery of the person she has grown up to be, Jenna must work out what, and who, really matters. 

 Following 5 sell out public workshop performances, 13 Going on 30 will make its world premiere in 2025.
