Gloucester Stage kicks off the 2013 season with Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik's Spring Awakening from June 20 through July 14 in the air-conditioned comfort of Gloucester Stage Company at 267 East Main Street, Gloucester, MA.

This landmark musical with book and lyrics by Steven Sater and music by Duncan Sheik is based on Frank Wedekind's 1891 German expressionist play about the trials and tribulations, and the exhilaration of the teen years.

With its electrifying and hauntingly beautiful score, Spring Awakening traces the sexual awakening of several youths in an atmosphere of repression. Their journey from adolescence to adulthood is explored with poignancy and passion.
