Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening

Book and Lyrics by Steven Sater; music by Duncan Sheik
Based on the play by Frank Wedekind
Shawn Churchman, Director

Following in the footsteps of Hair and Rent, Spring Awakening, presented by the Weitzenhoffer School of Musical Theatre, captures the zeitgeist of a generation. It’s 1891 in a provincial German town, teenagers rage against their parents, the establishment, and their own bodies as they enter adulthood demanding truth about life’s most basic needs: love and sex. Spring Awakening received 8 Tony Awards, a Grammy Award and multiple awards from Outer Critics Circle, New York Drama Critics Circle, Drama Desk, Drama League, and the Lucille Lortel Awards. This production contains adult themes, sexual content and is rated “R.”

ROE

Roe


Acclaimed writer, Lisa Loomer’s dramatic presentation chronicles the historic Supreme Court decision in the 1973 landmark case Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion. In this humorous, thoughtful and incisive play, Lisa Loomer cuts through the rhetoric to reveal the divergent personal journeys of the woman who was "Roe" and the lawyer who argued the case. A story with big ideas, the robust and topical Roe reflects the polarization in American politics today while illuminating the heart and passion each side brings to its cause. This production contains adult content.
