Following the success of Godspell (2022) and the sold- out run of The Drowsy Chaperone (2023), Bishop’s Musical Theatre presents SPRING AWAKENING, featuring a unique lighting design and a live band. The winner of eight Tony Awards, based on a once forbidden German play, Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that are both funny and tragic. In a conservative, ultra-religious town – a world where the grown-ups hold all the cards – young Wendla explores the mysteries of her body and wonders aloud where babies come from… until Mama tells her to shut it and put on a proper dress. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior interrupts a mind-numbing Latin drill to defend his buddy, Moritz – a boy so traumatized by puberty that he can’t concentrate on anything… One afternoon, in a private place in the woods, Melchior and Wendla meet by accident and soon find within themselves a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. As they fumble their way into one another’s arms, Moritz flounders and soon fails out of school. And soon, Mama learns that her little Wendla is pregnant. Now the young lovers must struggle against all odds to build a world together for their child.
