Studio 58, the nationally renowned professional theatre training program at Langara College, proudly presents the British Columbia premiere of the landmark rock musical, SPRING AWAKENING. This musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s controversial play explores teenage self-discovery and emerging sexuality against the backdrop of a repressive 19th century Germany. Winner of 8 Tony Awards, 4 Drama Desk Awards, 4 Olivier Awards and a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
“Broadway may never be the same!”- NY Times
“It's shocking how fresh the story and characters created by Frank Wedekind over a century ago still feel today. Employing alt-rock riffs and edgy lyrics, the musical gets under your skin. The youth of SPRING AWAKENING find themselves caught in the tumultuous experience of sexual awakening, self-definition and even self-destruction. The passion and transformation that is revealed day to day at Studio 58 is a wonderful starting place for the actors in this show. In theatre school, discoveries happen every day.”
- David Hudgins, Director
