From 1891, a tumultuous tale of rebellious teenagers coming to terms with their own sexual identities and falling in love along way.
When German playwright, Frank Wedekind completed his play Fruhlings Erwachen (SPRING AWAKENING) in 1891, he ignited a firestorm of controversy and censorship. Over 100 years later, this seminal story about teens struggling with their sexuality continues to be performed all over the world!
Making history as the first feature-film version, our production follows closely the themes set out by the original, revolutionary author. Filled with teen angst, rebellious actions and sexual questioning, our story follows what young teens experience when coming-of-age. Across the globe, this cautionary tale continues to inspire rebels, surge debate and most importantly, refuses to be ignored!
Presently, SPRING AWAKENING has found even greater success with the Broadway Musical version of the same name. This extremely popular, hit Broadway production garnered 8 Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, later took home 3 Olivier Awards in 2010.
