13 The Musical


Performances: April 29 - May 8, 2021
 
Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, (Parade, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County) 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out! 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 simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain... or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!?

Arm Balance and Inversion Workshop

Jenny Driessen, an 8 year yoga instructor from San Diego, is hosting a 1 hour + 15 min Arm Balance/Inversion Workshop, “Connecting the Dots”.

We’ll start with a basic warm-up flow to stretch and activate the muscles needed for each inversion/arm balance. We’ll then build up to some peak postures taking the time to explain each “dot” along the way. Forearm headstand, Firefly, and 8 Angle to name a few. There will be no additional heat to the class. All levels are welcome! Please bring your own water bottle, props and mat.
