With power outages, plus government and school closures this week in the wake of superstorm Sandy, rehearsals for Bel Air High School's production of 13: The Musical were temporarily put on the back burner.
While the show was set to open Thursday night, the opening has been pushed back to Friday.
"Like everyone else, we were affected by the weather, but as they say, the show must go on," Chuck Bowden, executive director with the Bel Air Drama Company, wrote in an email to Patch.
The show will now open at 7 p.m. Friday. Two performances will take place on Saturday, the first at 2 p.m. and the second at 7 p.m. There will also be a 2 p.m. matinee performance on Sunday.
Check back with Patch for a photo preview Friday before the show.
The following is a description of the show provided by Bowden:
13: the Musical has been called “a grown-up story about growing up.”
When his parents get divorced and he's forced to move from New York to a small town in Indiana, Evan Goldman just wants to make friends and survive the school year. Easier said than done.
The star quarterback is threatening to ruin his life, and his only friend, Patrice, won't talk to him. The school freak sees an opportunity for blackmail and someone is spreading the nastiest rumors.
With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, 13 is a hilarious, high-energy musical for all ages about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it.
