In the Wings: 13. Meet Emma Scofield.

Emma Scofield 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?
Emma Scofield: I thought it was a cool musical, and I wanted to shake up my routine a little bit. Normally I have just school and then diving, so I'm throwing in something extra.

Q: What is fun about being part of 13?
E.S.: I think it's a good representation of living in a small town. Your choices are limited, but there's still a lot of excitement.

Q: What is the best age, whether you've already reached it or not?
E.S.: 22. You have enough experience from being 21 and it's your last year of college, so it's an all-out year.

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.
