Spring Awakening _ WITCH Music Theatre _

"EVERYTHING A MUSICAL SHOULD BE AND MORE. ELECTRIC, FRESH, PASSIONATE YET POLISHED, THIS IS MUSICAL THEATRE AT ITS BEST. IT IS AMONGST THE BEST PIECES OF MUSICAL THEATRE I’VE SEEN IN WELLINGTON.”

Spring Awakening

April 10 — 21, 2018

BATS Theatre, 1 Kent Terrace Wellington.

 

Music by Duncan Sheik

Book and lyrics by Steven Sater

 

In a world where sex and passion are repressed and confusion and ignorance are capable of bringing both salvation and destruction, Spring Awakening explores the 'bitch of living' for young people denied knowledge, power and autonomy. Audiences follow the anguished journey of sexual awakening with illuminating and hauntingly unforgettable poignancy in an effort to discover the beauty of living in this melancholic, complicated world.

Exhilarating audiences across the world, Spring Awakening is at its heart, the story of young people struggling against all odds to build a world and find a place for themselves.

“Inspired.

the slick choreography is stunning. The lush and beautifully rendered harmonies is often

spine-tingling."
