About the Show

This electrifying rock musical explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a passion that is both illuminating and unforgettable.

Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, Spring Awakening revolutionized musical theatre with its unflinching exploration of controversial subject matters and use of alternative rock and folk music. This production contains mature content.

This production is sponsored by Emil Rinderspacher & Susan Goodner.

A Note from Director Elizabeth Tracey

“Spring Awakening is a musical about a group of 19th century German teenagers who struggle through social issues that are just as relevant today as they were in 1890. The juxtaposition of rock-n-roll gives emotional release to the teenagers’ plea to be heard and understood. The show’s biting commentary on sex education in public schools is just as current a political issue as other issues in the show, including the epidemic of teenage suicides. Teenagers are grappling with these issues every day.

“The message that Spring Awakening sends is that whatever you’re going through, whoever you are, whoever you love, it’s okay. It’s all part of growing up. And that message is crucial to developing teenagers. We are performing Spring Awakening because it gives a much-needed voice to our youth. It could be the event that encourages adults to open up to those difficult but much-needed conversations with their teens.”
