10th Grade, Bronx Science High School
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.
