Based on the 1891 German play by
Frank Wedekind, Spring Awakening
explores and exposes the challenges
of adolescence through new music by
Duncan Sheik and words by Steven
Sater. A group of young friends who
have grown up together in a small town turn to one another
with questions and curiosity about their feelings, thoughts,
fears, and desires. Melchior has the advantage of information, allowed by his more liberal parents to read beyond
the subjects taught in school. He tries to help his friend
Moritz, who is so deeply troubled by his sexual thoughts and
dreams that he is unable to concentrate on his studies. Meanwhile, Wendla struggles to get answers from her mother
about “how it happens” when she learns her sister has given
birth for the second time. As the play unfolds, we see the
awakening of these young people as they put together the
pieces of things they have only heard whispers about in a
society where free thought is shamed and punished.
The ACT production is directed by
Megan Healey, with musical direction
by Ted Trobaugh and choreography
by Sue Dresser. The cast includes:
Chloe Castro-Santos as Wendla,
Emme Grace Geryk as Martha, Hannah Trobaugh as Thea, Cassandra Clark as Anna, Laura
Langman as Ilse, Bobby Hawes as Melchior,
Tyler Conroy as
Moritz, Nicholas Cummings as Hanschen,
Collins Hilton as
Ernst, Sean Sanford as
Georg, AJ Krawczyk
as Otto, Alana Martineau as Adult Women,
and Joshua Aaron Mason as Adult Men.
Spring Awakening rocked Broadway in 2006, with a unique
style and score, as well as a cast of highly talented young
actors led by Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff. The production won 8 Tony Awards, 4 Drama Desk Awards, and a
Grammy for the original cast recording. A 2015 revival by
Deaf West Theatre brought the concept of challenges in communication between teens and adults to a whole new level,
with a cast of both deaf and hearing actors and choreography
that incorporated American Sign Language.
Talkback sessions featuring members of the
cast and production
crew, as well as community members in the
fields of mental health and education, will take place after
both matinee performances, April 24th and May 1st. During
this time, audience members will be able to ask questions and
engage in a discussion about some of the topics addressed in
the show. Due to mature themes and language, this show is
not recommended for young children.

"Stories are bigger at the bar.
Just when you thought you heard every crazy
9/11 conspiracy theory, a stranger walks into the
Yankee Tavern. There, inside the walls of this
crumbling New York bar, a young couple finds
themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all. Steven Dietz's acclaimed
dramatic thriller is a fierce, funny, and ultimately
mind-bending work that grips you until the final
Yankee Tavern is presented by special arrangement with
Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
