Spring Awakening is a groundbreaking rock musical about adolescent love, the trials of puberty, and the friendships that young people build in the face of an uncomprehending world.

Inspired by Frank Wedekind’s once-banned and still provocative German play from 1891, this version of Spring Awakening holds a mirror up to our own time and has become a must-see musical of a new generation. The show won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Music is by Duncan Sheik and book and lyrics by Steven Sater.

You can see the show at Oglethorpe’s Conant Performing Arts Center on October 18-19 and 24-26 at 8 p.m. and October 27 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available online.
