Directed by Edward Reichert • Musical Direction by Kellie Moody

Book & Lyrics by Steven Sater; Music by Duncan Sheik
Based on the play by Frank Wedekind

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 passion, angst and rebellion.
Includes mature language and subject matter.
