What does Jenna Rink want for her birthday? That’s easy. At thirteen years old, she wants to skip her school years and 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.

13 Going on 30 The Musical is a stage reimagining of the beloved 2004 hit romantic comedy film that starred Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo.

This brand-new musical will be presented as a script in hand workshop presentation, with a brilliant cast and live band. This is a rare opportunity to see a brand-new musical and be a part of its early development stages, whether you are thirteen or thirty.

13 Going on 30 The Musical is directed by Andy Fickman (HEATHERS, She’s The Man), with a book by Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa (13 Going On 30, What Women Want) and an original score by Michael Weiner and Alan Zachary (First Date Broadway, Trading Places).


13 Going On 30 The Musical workshop is produced by ROYO.
