CYGNET THEATRE To Stage POWERFUL and BOLD Coming of Age Musical - SPRING AWAKENING ...
Cygnet Artistic Director Sean Murray will direct Spring Awakening, an eight-time Tony Award-winning musical with an electrifying rock score by Duncan Sheik. This intoxicating story of youth and sexuality is based on an 1895 play by Frank Wedekind and features a book and lyrics by Steven Sater. The production, featuring choreography by award-winning dance maker Michael Mizerany, runs March 6 through April 27 at the Old Town Theatre. Opening Night is March 15th.
The production contains mature themes, sexual situations and explicit language that may not be suitable for all ages. Still, Murray feels strongly that the rock musical about rebellious 19th century teenagers who take a provocative journey from adolescence to adulthood - is a perfect way to begin discussions between teens and adults.
For further information, go to www.cygnettheatre.com, call (619) 337-1525, or ... just go in person to their Old Town Theatre (4040 Twiggs Street) ... and book your seats!
