Texas Theatre and Dance presents Spring Awakening
Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood as a group of young people struggle with questions of morality, sexuality, and self-identity. Set to a punk rock score, this groundbreaking musical personifies the struggles of growing up and finding your own unique voice.
Spring Awakening tells a story of adolescent love, the trials of puberty and the friendships built in the face of an uncomprehending world. Based on Frank Wedekind's once-banned and still provocative German play from 1891, Spring Awakening holds up a mirror to our own time and has established itself as a must-see musical of a new generation.
Spring Awakening features book and lyrics by Steven Sater, and music by Duncan Sheik. It will be directed by Anna Skidis Vargas.
