Hayden high students present “13: The Musical”
The Hayden High School theater program will present a production of Jason Robert Brown’s “13: The Musical” at 1 p.m. today and Sunday, Nov.13 in the high school auditorium.
Originally a Broadway show, “13: The Musical” has been adapted by Hayden High School students for their fall production. The musical details the life of 12-year-old Evan Goldman following a move from New York City to a small town as he grapples with his parents’ divorce, prepares for his impending Bar Mitzvah and navigates the social scene at his new school.
Though the show is appropriate for most audiences, parents should note that is does contain some adult language and humor.
Admission for the production is a suggested donation of $10 per ticket.

Meeting held with National Geographic photographer
Bud Werner Memorial Library and Yampa Valley Photographers Club present a conversation about craft, entrepreneurship and adventure with National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, in Library Hall, 1289 Lincoln Ave.
Richardson has photographed more than 30 stories for National Geographic, and his work takes him around the world, from the tops of volcanic peaks to below the surface of swamps and wetlands.
Local photographer Scott Bideau will moderate a Q&A session via Skype with this globetrotting photographer, who manages worldwide adventures based out of Lindbsorg, Kansas, a town similar in size to Steamboat Springs.
In addition to taking audience questions about the craft of photography, Richardson will talk about the ongoing challenges of running a business from a small town, what it takes to cover everyday life while traveling the world as a journalist and his witness to the global agricultural obstacles in feeding a hungry planet.
This event is free. For more information, visit steamboatlibrary.org/events.
