Spring Awakening Invites Students to Education Workshop April 25

News   Spring Awakening Invites Students to Education Workshop April 25 Spring Awakening is inviting student groups to participate in an education program administered by the Broadway education organization StudentsLive on April 25.

Students will participate in a morning workshop from 9:15 AM to 11:30 AM and then see a matinee of the show.

The workshop will include a contest in which students — before arriving at the workshop — can submit an original monologue or song based on themes of the show. The winning students will perform their work at the workshop.

The workshop will also include a question-and-answer session with members of the cast, a theatre history game show and an opportunity for students to learn the songs and choreography from the show.

Because of the show's mature content, StudentsLive recommends the show only to students in high school and college, or older.

Tickets are $79.50 for orchestra or front mezzanine, or $54.50 for rear mezzanine. The price includes the workshop, the ticket and a study guide. Since 1998, StudentsLive’s Broadway education programs have attracted over 500,000 participants.

To reserve a spot, or for more information, call StudentsLive at (212) 220-6000 or visit www.studentslive.net.

Spring Awakening has music by Duncan Sheik, lyrics and book by Steven Sater, direction by Michael Mayer and choreography by Bill T. Jones. The musical is based on Frank Wedekind's 1891 expressionist play, which was scandalous in its day for addressing sex, violence and suicide.

Two actors play all the adult roles, and the others in the ensemble cast plays teenagers. Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff play the lead roles of two teens drawn to each other in a world where parents, ministers and teachers create an atmosphere of shame, silence and ignorance.

Spring Awakening began previews at Broadway's Eugene O'Neill Theatre on Nov. 16, 2006 and opened Dec. 10, 2006. Its world premiere was Off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theatre Company, where it opened June 15, 2006.

The Eugene O'Neill Theatre is at 230 West 49th Street. For more information on the show visit springawakening.com.
