Written by Tony Award winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, 13: THE MUSICAL is an unforgettable rock 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?

Wellesley Theatre Project’s 13: THE MUSICAL features a talented cast of 18 students between the ages of twelve and fifteen. These cast members reside in Wellesley as well as neighboring communities including Needham, Natick, and Dover.

Registration is open for WTP’s Spring classes including Acting, Musical Theatre Dance, Improv, Stage Combat, and more! In addition, registration is open for WTP’s 2018 Summer Camps.

Wellesley High School, Katherine L. Babson Auditorium

50 Rice Street,  Wellesley Hills, MA. 02481

For tickets visit www.saengerfest.org



On Sunday Feb 11, 2018, Wellesley High School will present Brothers, Sing On!, a male voice a cappella festival hosted by the Boston Saengerfest Men’s Chorus.

Headlining the afternoon are the famous Yale Whiffenpoofs. Each year 14 senior Yale men are selected to be members of the “Whiffs,” a tradition that dates back to 1909. Their inimitable style and their performances from “the tables down at Mory’s” to at least one concert in Antarctica have given rise to hundreds of collegiate a cappella groups around the world.

The Handel and Haydn Society Young Men’s Chorus, is a choir for advanced changed and changing male voices that is part of the Vocal Arts Program. This choral program also has three treble choirs for elementary, middle and high school aged singers. In an effort to educate the entire musician, choir members also take musicianship classes.

The Wellesley High School’s Men’s Chorus, conducted by Dr. Kevin McDonald, will also sing. Each year the Wellesley High choral department performs in numerous formal events, a cappella festivals, and community outreach events providing important opportunities for the singers to share their music with a wide audience and learn from the many other talented groups with whom they perform.

Boston Saengerfest Men’s Chorus is made up of approximately 70 male choristers based in the Greater Boston area. The men of Saengerfest enjoy the camaraderie of singing at weekly rehearsals and performing in four or five concerts each year. The traditional but wide-ranging repertoire includes folk songs, love songs, spirituals and sacred music, classical excerpts, traditional English and Welsh songs and anthems, and an occasional show tune.
