Ram’s Head Theatrical Society Presents Spring Awakening: A New Musical

Book + Lyrics by Steven Sater
Music by Duncan Sheik

Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Spring Awakening is a rock musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s 1891 expressionist play about the trials and tribulations, and the exhilaration of the teen years. Spring Awakening takes its inspiration from one of literature’s most controversial masterpieces – a work so daring in its depiction of teenage self-discovery, it was banned from the stage and not performed in its complete form in English for nearly 100 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. The play celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget.

This show contains adult themes and explicit language.
