Casting has been announced for upcoming workshops for new musical 13 Going on 30.

Based on the 2004 movie, 13 Going on 30 follows 13-year-old girl named Jenna Rink who magically transforms into her 30-year-old self.

The musical will be holding a two week workshop hosted at Battersea Arts Centre with public performances from 25 – 28 October

The cast of the workshop presentations will include Lucie Jones (Les Miserables, Waitress, Wicked) as Jenna Rink, Jamie Muscato (Moulin Rouge, West Side Story) as Matt Flamhaff, Grace Mouat (SIX, & Juliet) as Lucy, Caleb Roberts (TINA: The Tina Turner Musical) as Richard, Alex Stoll (Groundhog Day) as Alex, Andrew Berlin (Oklahoma!) as Kyle, Kia-Paris Walcott (Heathers) as Wendy, Mary-Jean Caldwell (Heathers) as Bev, Jena Pandya (UK and International tour of MAMMA MIA!) as Arlene, Lewis Asquith (Heathers) as Wayne and Ivan Fernandez Gonzalez (Heathers) as Darius.

What does Jenna Rink want for her birthday? That’s easy. At thirteen years old, she wants one thing only – to be thirty, flirty and thriving. As she blows out her birthday candles, she magically wakes up seventeen years later: a thirty-year-old fashion magazine editor with a life that seems to be perfect. As she unravels the mystery of the person she has grown up to be, Jenna must work out what, and who, really matters.

Directed and produced by Andy Fickman, the musical has a score by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner and book by Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa, who wrote the original screenplay.
