Rock Musical “Spring Awakening” Feb. 15-22
Musical Theatre Students at Four-Year Baccalaureate Perform
Popular Musical for University Audience and Local Community
RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 13, 2014 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, is proud to announce that its Musical Theatre Program is hosting and performing the award-winning rock musical, Spring Awakening, Saturday, Feb. 15, through Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 in Leggett Theatre, located in Main Building at 15 East Peace St. The campus musical was first set to open on Thursday, Feb. 13, but was cancelled due to inclement weather. The production is the winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and is an adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s expressionist play about the trials, tribulations, and exhilaration of the teen years.
WPU’s adaptation of Spring Awakening will be directed by University Artistic Director and Assistant Professor of Musical Theatre, Jason Dula, MTE, and is open to the public. Tickets cost $18 for adults, $16 for senior citizens, Alumni, faculty, and staff, and $5 for students and children. Most show times run from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., but vary throughout the week. For a detailed schedule, plus information on show cancellations, click here.
“We are thrilled that our Musical Theatre Program is putting on such a great musical,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Our professors are experienced in teaching these complex and detailed productions, and our students work hard to learn such elaborate choreography and characters, which will prepare them for a successful career. We encourage everyone from the community to come see the show.”
Spring Awakening is rated-R and only people over the age of 18 will be permitted. The event is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
