This Tony Award-winning rock musical tells the story of desire and confusion as teenagers’ hormones collide during the journey from youth to adulthood. Through rebellious trials and tribulations, the sensuality of the characters is often denied and suppressed, leading to tragic consequences. The poignant and revealing messages in Spring Awakening are powerful, passionate and unforgettable.

For mature audiences only, due to violent content, strong (profane) language and the theme of abuse.
