Spring Awakening is to run at The Hope Street Theatre in Liverpool later this month.
Warrington based First Act will bring Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik’s award-winning musical to the venue in a fresh and vibrant new production between 28 and 30 October.
Based on the 1891 German play by Frank Wedekind, Spring Awakening tells the story of teenagers discovering the inner and outer tumult of adolescent sexuality. Set in mid-19th-century Germany, the musical, with its alternative and folk-infused rock score, explores oppression, freedom, teenage angst, and the dangers of hiding the truth.
Spring Awakening will be directed by Kit Phillips, with Choreography from Ceris Shadwell and Musical Direction Ashley Walsh.
The company will feature: Jack Wright (Melchoir), India Poulaud (Wendla), Isaac Harthill (Moritz), Poppy Williams (Ilse), Toby Holmes (Hanschen), Jake Burke (Ernst), Olivia Hebden (Martha), Harvey Farrell (Georg), Jess Ratcliffe (Anna), Daniel Wilson (Otto), Isobel Green (Thea), Amy Groves (Ina) alongside an adult company of actors including: Seb Farrell, Neil Atherton, Abbie Rippon, Amanda Avery and Fabienne Dunbar.
