In the Wings: 13. Meet Dante Singleton.

Dante Singleton plays Eddie 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?
Dante Singleton: I like musicals, I haven't been in a play for a while so I was getting bored, and I'm at that age.

Q: Who is Eddie?
D.S.: Eddie is an awkward guy, but he feeds his coolness off of Brett. I like to play him because I get to goof around quite a bit and act like a stereotypical on-the-streets guy.

Q: What is the best age, whether you've already reached it or not?
D.S.: 30. You can do everything and just not care.

13 runs Friday, February 14 through Sunday, February 16 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street, at the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday show begins at 2:30 p.m.
