The Hamilton College Theatre Department presents the spring production of the musical Spring Awakening, book and lyrics by Steven Sater, and music by Duncan Sheik. Based on Frank Wedekind’s provocative play, the Tony Award-winning Spring Awakening explores the conflict between repressive adult society and adolescent sexual awakenings in 19th Century Germany. The show is directed by Professor of Theatre Craig Latrell, with music direction by Karen Corigliano and choreography by Professor of Dance Elaine Heekin.
Performances run Thursday, April 14 – Saturday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m., and Wednesday, April 20– Saturday, April 23, at 7:30 p.m. There are two matinee shows on Saturday, April 16 and April 23 at 2 p.m. All performances take place in the new state-of-the-art Romano Theatre in the Kennedy Center for Theatre and the Studio Arts.
