New video: ‘Spring Awakening’ is fall musical from Theatre/Dance, Music
UW-Green Bay Theatre and Dance and UW-Green Bay Music will perform a tale of teenage rebellion and adolescent sexuality beginning Nov. 20, presenting the eight-time Tony Award-winning musical “Spring Awakening” in four shows at University Theatre in Theatre Hall. Based on a late 19th century play by Frank Weidekind and adapted as a modern pop/rock musical, this expressionist work explores themes centered around the transition to adulthood. It’s not for kids — the musical is rated R for strong language and adult content — but adult audiences will find plenty they can relate to and discuss, says director John Mariano. We spent some time at play rehearsal this week, and our new preview video tells — and shows — you all about the show.
