Carolyn Oneal plays a rabbi and a kid in 13, the third show in the 2013-2014 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Jason Robert Brown wrote the music and lyrics, and Dan Elish and Robert Horn wrote the book.
Question: Why did you audition for 13?
Carolyn Oneal: My social studies teacher, Mr. Radtke, thought it would be a good idea because I sing all the time and I like to perform. This seemed like a fun thing to do.
Q: What's the best part about being part of 13?
C.O.: I'm making a lot of new friends. It's fun to get to know all these people, and they all share the same love that I have for performing.
Q: What is the best age, whether you've already reached it or not?
C.O.: 23. You're out of college, but then you're not in the position that you have to work yet. You have to work, but it isn't as big of a deal and you don't have to care as much as when you're 30.
