Maggie Pearl plays Cassie 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?
Maggie Pearl: I am thirteen, and the last musical I was in was fun.
Q: Who is Cassie?
M.P.: Cassie is trying to get by. She's having fun becoming thirteen. She tries not to follow Lucy, but gets pulled in most of the time. I like to sing, and her solo is very fun and upbeat.
Q: What is the best age, whether you've already reached it or not?
M.P.: 5 is probably the best age because you don't have to worry about anything. You're still going to school so you can have fun there, but your homework is "What's 1 plus 1?"
