UNH Celebrates Young Love With “Spring Awakening”
Spring Awakening starring Alexandra Wing ’16 and Connor McGrath ’14, February 20-24, 2013
Do you remember your first love? UNH will take you back to those heady times, Feb. 20- Feb. 24 with its production of “Spring Awakening” at the Johnson Theater in the Paul Creative Arts Center.
Set in Germany, the rock musical “Spring Awakening” tells the story of a group of teenagers in Germany during the late 19th century as they navigate self-discovery and coming of age anxiety in a powerful celebration of youth and rebellion. This landmark musical is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll and, as such, may not be appropriate for those under age 17.
The winner of eight Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, “Spring Awakening” debuted on Broadway in 2006, staring Glee’s Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff and Broadway star John Gallagher, Jr.
“Spring Awakening” is based on a play of the same name by German playwright Frank Wedekind, whose work often criticized bourgeois attitudes, particularly towards sex. The music for “Spring Awakening” is by Duncan Sheik; book and lyrics are by Steven Sater.
The UNH production is directed by theater and dance professor John Berst.
Tickets are $15 for UNH students, ID holders and seniors and groups of 15 or more, and $18 for the general public and can be purchased through the PCAC Ticket Office located in the Johnson Theatre lobby of the Paul Creative Arts Center. This full-service ticket office is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and one hour before curtain.
