The Department of Theater, Film, and Media Studies at St. Mary’s College of Maryland announces “Spring Awakening,” the musical, beginning Feb. 28 and running March 1 through March 3 at 8 p.m., with the final performance on March 4 at 2 p.m. All performances take place in the Bruce Davis Theater, Montgomery Hall Fine Arts Center on the College campus.
Directed by Mark A. Rhoda, visiting associate professor of theater, film, and media studies; with musical direction by Larry Vote, professor of music, and Robert Hayes ’17, the Tony Award-winning musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s seminal 1891 play of the same name, “Spring Awakening” is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality, and rock-and-roll that celebrates teenage self-discovery and rebellion against the authoritarian rule of parents and teachers. With poignancy and passion, Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater’s musical navigates the rocky terrain that is coming of age.
