Wofford Theatre will change you. It will transform your heart, your body, and your mind.
April 21-23 and 27-30, 2016
Spring Awakening is raucous, awesome, and terrifying. It is a dark and exuberant coming-of-age rock show; it is a frank look at the tumult of teenage sexuality; and it is a poignant and heartbreaking indictment of a repressive social and educational culture that in many ways looks a lot like our current culture.
Based on the 1891 play Spring Awakening (Frühling’s Erwachen) by German author Frank Wedekind, the adaptationby Duncan Sheik (music) and Steven Sater (book) won nine Tony awards in 2007 including Best Musical.
Wofford’s production features senior Theatre major Madison Eberhardt (recently returned from a semester at the renowned Moscow Art Theatre) as Wendla, local actor Tim Giles as Melchior, junior Theatre major Sean Bray as Moritz, and an extremely talented supporting cast of young theatre artists.
SPRING AWAKENING IS INTENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY AND IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER 17.

In this world-premiere play with music, we meet three brave elementary school kids -- Rita, Rosie and Rex -- who have decided to, rather than waiting until they are all grown up, make today the day they live out their dreams. Rita wants to write the kind of stories she has fallen in love with in all of her books, Rosie wants to run races and maybe even win some, and Rex wants to perform on a big stage and pour his heart into his own rockstar-dom. Will they be able to accomplish their goals with some practice, some help, and a little big of magic? Come find out!
The show is FREE and runs approximately 50 minutes.
Everyone is welcome to this fun and inspiring show!
