Steel Beam Theatre of Saint Charles will be kicking of their 2024-2025 season with the Tony Award Winning musical Spring Awakening under the direction of Maxwell Peters. Tickets are on-sale now at SteelBeamTheatre.com for Thursday - Sunday Performances August 1st - August 11th.

Discover the tumultuous journey of adolescence in Spring Awakening, a Tony Award-winning rock musical that daringly explores the raw, unfiltered emotions of growing up. Set in 1938 Germany, Peters' provocative adaptation of Frank Wedekind's controversial play follows a group of teenagers as they navigate the confusing landscape of sexual awakening, societal repression, and self-discovery. With its powerful, contemporary score by Duncan Sheik and bold, honest lyrics by Steven Sater, Spring Awakening captures the intensity and confusion of youth in a gripping, unforgettable way.

Spring Awakening will star the Maren Nazar of Park Ridge as Wendla Bergmann and Marcus Jackson of Chicago as Melchior Gabor. Cosmo Coniglio of Chicago plays Melchior's troubled best friend Moritz Stiefel and Viv Vaeth of Chicago plays the free-spirited Ilse Neumann. Melissa Wickland of Chicago plays Martha Bessel who hides a cycle of familial abuse.

Splitting the duty of playing over 10 adult roles are Jaycey Carlson and Katy Fattaleh. Brooke Kassal of Lombard serves as the on stage swing for the production.
