#Turning13 Q & A is back again this week! Last week we asked a random selection of companies to tell us, "What advice would your MAIN CHARACTER give to their 13 year old self?" This week we bring you: Fireflood Entertainment, Jean Caffeine, LM Magalas, and Phil Rickaby with their answers! (PLUS 2 fun facts about their show). Click on each photo to get more info about their shows.

Awoken on #Turning13

Q: What advice would the main character of your show give to their 13 year old self?
A: Turn off the computer
Q: Give us a fun fact about your show, your company, or your team.
A: 1. Awoken is inspired by a true story, as well as a number of things which are awesome and scary.

Sadie Saturday Night on #Turning13

Q: What advice would the main character of your show give to their 13 year old self?
A: I don't think the main character of my show would give any advice to her 13 year old self because the main character of my piece is 17 years old and is living recklessly. Maybe the 13 year old self should give some advice to the 17 year old self to slow down and think about her choices...however if she did, the 17 year old self wouldn't listen.
Q: Give us two fun facts about your show, your company, or your team.
1. Jean Caffeine had a cameo in the Rick Linklater movie, "Slacker" as Roadkill (basically just a dead body on the road).
2. Mike Trebilcock and his band the Killjoys earned a Juno award in 1997 for best new band.

The Five Lives of Colby Carter on #Turning13

Q: What advice would the main character of your show give to their 13 year old self?
A: The title character, Colby Carter, would share this: Choose your friends wisely. Family comes first. And it is definitely okay to date a musician.
Q: Give us two fun facts about your show, your company, or your team.
1. "The Five Lives of Colby Carter" is described as "a quirky fun whodunnit with original music and Rashomon-ish storytelling".
2. We have an amazing and charismatic cast full of talent, chemistry and many geeky inside jokes.

The Commandment on #Turning13

Q: What advice would the main character of your show give to their 13 year old self?
A: No good can come from speaking to strange deities persistently trying to talk to you. Ignore them. This will make sense one day.
Q: Give us two fun facts about your show, your company, or your team.
1. Author Phil Rickaby usually works with the silent film inspired company Keystone Theatre. This is his first time speaking on stage in five years.
2. The Commandment is made up of equal parts true story, a coffee induced day dream, and the unanswerable question of why bad things happen to good people.
