THE ADULT WOMEN (played by one woman):

FRAU BERGMAN: Wendla’s mother.

We are currently seeking non-AEA actors. We are particularly interested in actors with strong singing and dancing training and experience.


Tony Award-winning rock musical Spring Awakening follows a group of late nineteenth-century German adolescents on the road to adulthood as they squirm out of school uniforms and discover their own mysterious, throbbing sexuality. As sweetly naïve Wendla wonders where babies come from, her angst-riddled male counterparts, Melchior and Moritz, deal with their erotic dreams and the “bitch of living.” But when these rebellious teens begin acting on their desires, they quickly spiral into an all-too-adult world in which suicide, abortion, rape, and child abuse dominate. Will Melchior find salvation and hope for the future? Don’t miss this dark and impassioned musical.
