It is Germany, 1891, a world where the grown-ups hold all the cards. Wendla, Melchior and Moritz are three teenagers fighting to explore their sexuality for the first time against the repression of their parents. The result is a fast-paced yet poignant rock musical that has enchanted audiences for over a decade. With the original Broadway production winning eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, Spring Awakening is a challenging and exhilarating musical that will leave you desperate to rebel against the status quo.
