Spring Awakening,the Tony Award-winning musical by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater based upon the play by Frank Wedekind, opens at Clarksville's Roxy Regional Theatre for an April 13-May 15 run, starring Matt DuMont as Melchior and Hannah Church as Wendla.

Winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, Spring Awakening celebrates the journey from youth to adulthood with "a power, poignancy and passion that you will never forget," a press release says.

Set in a socially and sexually repressive village in 19th century Germany, this coming of age story follows teenagers Melchior (Matt DuMont), Wendla (Hannah Church), and Moritz (Gregory Pember) on their journeys of self-discovery.  Also featured are Melanie Beck, Josh Bernaski, Ryan Bowie, Regan Featherstone, Humberto Figueroa, Leslie Greene, Erin Keas, Ashley Laverty, John McDonald, Hollie Morse, Sean Ormond, Rob Rodems, Cassie Thompson and Kendall Anne Thompson.
