    You’ve read the glowing review in the Driftwood by now. Your friends have told you how great it is. You know you shouldn’t miss it!! And this is your LAST CHANCE.

    Local theatre company exitStageLeft, well known for previous summer main stage hits including RENT!, Into the Woods, Cabaret, and last year’s Spamalot, presents Spring Awakening, a rock musical by Duncan Sheik (music) and Steven Sater (lyrics), based on the 1891 German play of the same name by Frank Wedekind.

    Set in late 19th-century provincial Germany, Spring Awakening tells the story of teens discovering the inner and outer tumult of teenage sexuality. Although the setting, costumes and dialogue belong to the past, the alt and folk-rock musical numbers become the youths’ escape – a vision of a better, safer, more fun and saner future.

    The musical takes on the present in an unusual way. As it turns out, Sater and Sheik began writing Spring Awakening in response to the Columbine massacre. Steven Sater wrote “I had heard that Cameron Kasky (the 17 yr. old firebrand who started the Never Again movement with his classmates) was now playing Melchior (in a local professional production). He has been so eloquent and impassioned, alive with the force of truth—like Melchior himself.”
