A two-week workshop of the new musical 13 Going On 30, based on the film of the same name, will be held next month at the Battersea Arts Centre in the U.K.
Four script-in-hand public performances will be held October 25-28 with casting to be announced.
Goldsmith and Yuspa said in a joint statement, “When we poured our middle school pain into the movie 13 Going On 30, we never quite imagined it would stick around to this day as a rom-com parents show their kids, a Halloween costume, a scene in an Ariana Grande music video, and a teen sleepover staple. Now we’re thrilled to be bringing our pain across the pond with 13 Going On 30 The Musical. It’s been endlessly fun working with ROYO, Todd Garner, Revolution Studios, composer-lyricists Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner, and director Andy Fickman to reinvent this story for the London stage. We can’t wait for a new generation to grab some Razzles and feel 30, flirty, and thriving.”
Casting for the adult company is by Will Burton for Grindrod & Burton Casting, and casting for the children is by Keston and Keston.
The workshop precedes an expected full production in summer 2025.
