Spring Awakening

November 15 - 18, 2018 | Studio Theater A48

Book & Lyrics by Steven Sater   Music by Duncan Sheik

Based on the play by Frank Wedekind

Director/Choreographer: Brett Smock   Musical Director: Corinne Aquilina 

SPRING AWAKENING, an alt-rock musical based on the play by Frank Wedekind, is a winner of eight Tony Awards, including best musical. Deemed confrontational and controversial, the piece is adult in nature and wrestles with teen struggles around physical and emotional maturation. It is Germany, 1981, following the lives of school adolescents - headstrong Melchior,  innocent Wendla, and troubled Moritz, exploring the turbulence of budding sexuality in a powerful celebration of teen rebellion.

*Spring Awakening is not suitable for young audiences; containing mature language, sexual themes, and adult content.


Vinegar Tom

By Caryl Churchill 

Music by Helen Galvin

Directed by Lindsay Reading Korth

Set in seventeenth-century England, Obie Award winning author Caryl Churchill examines the oppressive marginalization of women in a story of witch hunts, injustice, and patriarchy in the powerful Vinegar Tom. Alice, her mother Joan, and other women in the neighborhood are not fitting the societal norms - sparking an investigation by doctors and witch hunters.
