SPRING AWAKENING

Spring Awakening is an electrifying rock musical about teenagers growing up in the repressive world of 1890s Germany. The characters grapple with sexuality, depression, social pressure, and more, all while trying to stay true to themselves. Spring Awakening is an exhilarating ride through adolescence that is unlike any other musical in years! Winner of eight Tony awards, this musical is not one you will want to miss, and surely one you will never forget!
