Photo Flash: On Stage Photos of Un-Common's SPRING AWAKENING

This summer the Un-Common Theatre Co will be the first Amateur Community Theatre Company in the US to perform the much acclaimed, Tony Award winning Broadway Musical SPRING AWAKENING. Winner of eight Tony Awards including best musical, direction, book and score, SPRING AWAKENING celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and a passion you will never forget.

SPRING AWAKENING is a rock musical adaptation of the controversial 1891 German play of the same title by Frank Wedekind which was, for a time, banned in Germany. It features music by Duncan Sheik with book and lyrics by Steven Sater. Set in late-19th century Germany, this show tells the story of teenagers who are discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality.

Music and Orchestra director, Esther Zabinski (Fall River, Ma), leads the talented cast through Mr. Sheik's astonishing music - ranging from dreamlIke Ballads to driving, almost religious rock anthems, director Christa Crewdson (Arlington, Ma) opens the cast to express the turmoil of puberty and the effect that provincialism and over protective parents have on their children and future generations while Julia Snider (Cambridge, Ma) choreographs this energetic cast's powerful movements.

The cast of 26 is comprised of the extraordinary talents of young adults from both Massachusetts and Rhode Island and include:

From Ashland, MA: Evyn Whiteley (Ilse)

From Bellingham, MA: Dillon Tognacci (Reinhold/Ensemble)

From East Bridgewater, MA: Kenneth Donovan (Ensemble)
