Sales Have Ended
****All Shows for Spring Awakening have sold out, with the exception of the 2pm. show on Saturday September 24****
The VCA’s Music Theatre Company of 2016 is proud to present Spring Awakening.
Based on the German play by Frank Wedekind, Spring Awakening has evolved into an infamous rock musical, with music by Steven Sater, along with book and lyrics by Duncan Sheirk.
Controversial and boundary pushing, the musical which once was banned in Germany will be brought to the stage by VCA’s final year musical theatre and production students.
It is Spring, 1891, in Germany, as we are introduced to our protagonists; charismatic Melchior, naïve Wendla, and their circle of friends. The group of German teenagers are on the cusp of Adulthood. The musical follows them as they discover themselves, each other and experience their own sexual awakenings. The results of which clash with the strict social attitudes of turn-of-the-century Germany.
Since its off-Broadway debut in 2006, Spring Awakening has been performed the world over, including highly successful Broadway and West End seasons. It has won numerous Tony and Oliver Awards.
