THE STORY: Germany, 1891. Adolescents, Wendla and Melchior, discover a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. Spring Awakening is a high energy, rock musical that explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children. Spring Awakening celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget. Rated R for language, mature themes, and brief nudity.
