Spring Awakening is a rock musical with music by Duncan Sheik and a book and lyrics by Steven Sater. Based on the German play Spring Awakening (1891) by Frank Wedekind. Set in late-19th-century Germany, the musical tells the story of teenagers discovering the inner and outer tumult of teenage sexuality. In the musical, alternative rock is employed as part of the folk-infused rock score.
Directed by Harriet Wise and Logan Pocock with musical direction by Kimberley Wood, Spring Awakening is a favourite amongst the theatre community - this show is not to be missed by anyone who appreciates the stage!
