Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening. A tragic musical portraying the darker side of our teenage years finally performed by teenagers! So what if the show displays sexuality, death, depression and a whole lot of cursing? The Beacon School didn’t seem to think it an issue when they decided to put on this high school production, and as a high school production it was all the more powerful.
Seeing this performance was a whole lot more than watching a show. I was seeing real people deal with things that we, as teenagers, already deal with on a day to day basis. There’s nothing more powerful than seeing incredibly talented teens confront issues that are not easy for anyone to confront, especially in a mind-blowing performance. If you want to see something real, to experience truth in theatre, see Spring Awakening at the Beacon School.

    Hey!
    I’m one of the cast members of this production (I play Otto) and It is SO awesome that we blew minds (And that that was written about online).
    It’s great that you enjoyed the show! I would say that being part of it was a really real experience, and I’m glad that realness showed.
