This play has won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical. Adapted from Frank Wedekind's 1891 expressionist play about the trials, tears and exhilaration of the teen years, Spring Awakening celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with power and passion.
“This brave new musical, haunting and electrifying by turns, restores the mystery, the thrill and quite a bit of the terror to that shattering transformation that stirs in all our souls sometime around the age of 13, well before most of us have the intellectual apparatus in place to analyze its impact. Impassioned and affecting, it gives powerful voice to the blend of melancholy and hope.” – New York Times

This is student theatre from the performing arts department at Grant MacEwan University. Contains adult content and language.
Let’s meet at the entrance to the theatre inside the university at 7 pm, so we can gather and sit together at this general admission performance. I’ll be wearing a yellow flower on my jacket for recognition.
