Rock Musical With Music By Duncan Sheik and a Book and Lyrics by Steven Sater

William Peace University is delighted to present Spring Awakening, a rock musical based on the play by Frank Wedekind and directed by Jason Dula, MTE, WPU's Artistic Director and Assistant Professor of Musical Theatre.

PRE-RESERVATIONS HAVE CLOSED. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND.

Spring Awakening is winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Spring Awakening is a rock musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind's expressionist play about the trials and tribulations, and the exhilaration of the teen years.

It’s Germany, 1891. The beautiful young Wendla explores her body and asks her mother where babies come from. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior defends his buddy Moritz -- a boy so traumatized by puberty he can’t concentrate on anything. One afternoon in the woods, Wendla and Melchior discover a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. Spring Awakening 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.

Spring Awakening Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
