Photo Flash: SPRING AWAKENING Plays Final Shows at Gloucester Stage

Gloucester Stage begins the final week of performances of Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik's Spring Awakening in the air-conditioned comfort of Gloucester Stage Company at 267 East Main Street, Gloucester, MA. The critically acclaimed production closes on Sunday, July 14. Scroll down for photos of the cast in action!

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. Sater and Sheik's energetic and powerful reimagining of the play for the Broadway stage earned 8 Tony Awards in 2007 including Best Musical, Best Book of A Musical, Best Original Score, Best Direction of A Musical, Best Performance by A Featured Actor in A Musical, Best Choreography, Best Orchestrations and Best Lighting Design of A Musical.

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. Due to adult themes and situations, the production is recommended for adults and young adults.

Spring Awakening is directed by Gloucester Stage Artistic Director Eric C. Engel with musical direction by Catherine Stornetta and choreography by Jodi Leigh Allen.
