The rock musical, Spring Awakening, has won many awards including the Tony for Best Musical along with 7 other Tony awards. It is based on the controversial German play Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind that was written in 1891 but is as current as today's news that shines a light on teens and the timeless difficulties and joys of their lives.
In exploring the tortured inner lives of a handful of adolescents in 19th-century Germany, this brave musical, haunting and electrifying by turns, restores the mystery, the thrill and quite a bit of the terror to that shattering transformation that stirs in all our souls sometime around the age of 13, well before most of us have the intellectual apparatus in place to analyze its impact.
Our cast is comprised of actors from nine different high schools and three different universities bringing a richness and excellence to the characters they portray. Many cast and crew members have been nominated for cappies awards and have received recognition with other awards for performing.
Contains Strong Language and Explicit Sexuality. Rated R. Parental Advisory Strongly Suggested.
