Tri-City students Kendra Cordick and Ryan Horton are in an Eternal Theatre Collective musical next month.
Cordick, a Port Moody resident who attends Archbishop Carney regional secondary school, is Kendra in 13 while Coquitlam's Horton, a Capilano University undergrad, is taking on the role of Brett.
The show was written by Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County) and explores issues around disability and bullying in early adolescences; it also features a prominent character afflicted with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Directed by Laura Reynolds, 13 runs Aug. 9 to 12 at the Revue Stage on Granville Island (1601 Johnston St., Vancouver). For tickets, visit eternaltheatre.com.
