This is a special one-time only performance of SPRING AWAKENING which was previously performed in the fall of 2015 to critical acclaim. The DSA Theatre Department has been honored with an invitation to perform this show again at the National Thespian Conference in Lincoln, NE this summer. So we bring back the show for your enjoyment one more time – with the original cast – to help raise the funds for the trip. PLEASE buy your tickets early as we anticipate this performance will sell out quickly.

As a reminder: Set in late-19th-century Germany, the musical tells the story of teenagers discovering the inner and outer tumult of teenage sexuality. In the musical, alternative rock is employed as part of the folk-infused rock score by Duncan Sheik with book and lyrics by Stephen Sater. This modern musical is based on the 1891 play by Frank Wedekind.
