Spring Awakening

Directed by Edward Reichert
Music Direction by Kellie Moody
Choreography by Jasmine Ireland

Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Spring Awakening is a provocative journey through the turbulent exhilaration of the teen years. Set in repressive 19th century Germany, where youth are kept ignorant about the hormone-infused transition from adolescence to adulthood, a group of teenagers confront their budding sexuality with scandalous consequences.

Featuring an electrifying score, this groundbreaking rock musical exudes a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget!

"Once in a generation a new musical comes along that changes everything." - The New York Times
