Welcome to Sound Ideas Theatre Company and our final production for 2019, Spring Awakening
“Those you’ve known and lost still walk behind you…”
Spring Awakening combines an electrifying rock-pop score and genre-defying writing to tell an explicit story of sexual and adolescent discovery. An international sensation and winner of 8 Tony and 4 Olivier Awards.
Presented in an immersive, derelict playground a group of teenagers are abandoned to their own devices. Navigating adolescence with their feelings, unaided.
This production brings Frank Wedekind’s story into the 21st century showing that in a connected world tied together through social media and screens, the taboo of talking to your parents is still prevalent. With a lack of human discussion, information is cropped and filtered and can come across as one-sided and warped, especially in juvenile hands.
They find that through each other they unlock a bold and brave new world – with both beautiful and tragic consequences.
This is Spring Awakening – Reimagined.
October 1st-4th. Epic Studios.
Please note, this production handles some very difficult subjects that some audience members might find uncomfortable. Including but not limited to, simulated sex, masturbation, suicide, self harm, child abuse and abortion. The musical is an adaptation of the original play written in the 1890s of the same name.
