Sean McKee plays Evan 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?
Sean McKee: It sounded like a pretty fun musical to be in, and I had never been in a Civic Theatre show before.
Q: Who is Evan?
S.McK.: He is the new kid in an Indiana town. He's trying to make friends, and wants people to come to his bar mitzvah. He's trying to fit in and find his place in his new school. I really like the songs he sings and he's just a fun character. He likes to have fun and make new friends.
Q: What is the best age, whether you've already reached it or not?
S.McK.: 16. You get your license, it's a fun time.
