An electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock ‘n’ roll, SPRING AWAKENING explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. In 1891 Germany, a world where the grown-ups hold all the cards, the beautiful young Wendla explores the mysteries of her body and wonders aloud where babies come from … until Mama tells her to shut it and put on a proper dress. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior interrupts a mind-numbing Latin drill to defend his buddy, Moritz – a boy so traumatized by puberty that he can’t concentrate on anything, much to the chagrin of the Headmaster. One afternoon, in a private place in the woods, Melchior and Wendla meet by accident and soon find within themselves a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. Through their struggles, the youth discover a new world of feeling and freedom outside their classrooms with beautiful and devastating consequences.
