Spring Awakening is an extraordinary musical that celebrates youth and rebellion in a daring fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll. Set in repressive 19th-century Germany, a group of teenagers are caught between their sexual urges and society’s contradictory teachings. Revealing their alluringly melancholy story of self-discovery and coming-of-age anxiety, they attempt to reckon with the thrilling, complicated, and confusing time of their sexual awakening. Inspired by Frank Wedekind’s controversial 1891 play about teenage sexuality and society’s efforts to control it, the piece seamlessly merges past and present, underscoring the timelessness of adolescent angst and the universality of human passion.

Winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.

Please be advised that this production contains strong language and explores mature themes. If you have questions about the content of this production, we encourage you to explore the Parent’s Guide provided by the official Spring Awakening website, as well as video testimonials given by parents and teens who saw the show on Broadway, and the documentary Kyle Riabko: The Lead filmed by Bravo Canada, profiling teenagers whose lives were changed by the show. All of these resources are great for teachers and parents who want to use the show as a platform for discussion, as well as for those deciding whether to see the show by themselves or together with their teen(s).
