The MSU School of Film and Photography presents the 2007 Tony Award-winning rock musical, Spring Awakening by Steven Slater & Duncan Sheik at MSU’s Black Box Theater (corner or 11th & Grant) on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 PM, and Sunday at 3 PM from April 7th to 23rd, 2017. Tickets are $15/general admission and $12/students.
Based on Frank Wedekind’s once-banned and still provocative German play Spring Awakening (1891), the musical is set in late-19th-century Germany, and tells the timeless story of teenagers facing the challenges of adolescent love, rebellion and sexuality. The original Broadway production won eight Tony Awards, four Drama Desk Awards and a Grammy Award for the original cast album.
MSU’s production, directed by Cara Wilder, features a multi-talented cast of student and community singer-actors, a live band under the musical direction of Stefan Stern, choreography by Shari Watson, and special effects created by MSU Film, Engineering and Music Tech students. Called, “A vital leap forward for the American musical,” (Time Out), Spring Awakening broke new ground for the genre and has become the must-see musical of a new generation. The New York Times proclaimed, “…with a ravishing rock score…this brave, new musical, haunting and electrifying by turns, restores the mystery, the thrill to that shattering transformation that stirs in all of our souls, some time around the age of thirteen…the voyage back is a deeply rewarding one.”
Tickets are available at Cactus Records and Gifts (29 W. Main St), First Interstate Bank in the Strand Union Building, and the front desk of the Visual Communications Building (11th and Grant St.) or at the door as available. This production contains nudity and is recommend for ages 15+. For more information, please call (406 ) 994-3904.
