Summer Theater Camp Photos: “Patrice” in “13”

My 11yo performed the part of “Patrice” in the clever coming-of-age musical “13” Saturday. Here she is with the leading character Evan (played by Anthony Marino — a very talented fellow with several movies on his resume).

The content was a bit edgy for a cast that included kids as young as 8, so some of the jokes went over their heads, and some of the lines got toned down (e.g. “dumb-assed” -> “dumb old”).The central message — that growing up is hard, popularity is fleeting, and a few true friends can make all the difference — was spot on.

For fun, I took my daughter and a castmate around town to film this brief promotional video of “The Lamest Place in the World” (one of Patrice’s two signature songs).

Here are some shots from the show.
