Butter Side Up Theatre Company
Spring Awakening

Set in late 19th century Germany, the musical tells the story of teenagers facing the turmoil of adolescent sexuality. An angsty rock musical adaptation of the seminal play abut the trails and tribulations of growing up.

Join this group of late 19th century German students on their passage as they navigate teenage self-discovery and coming of age anxiety, in a powerful celebration of youth and rebellion in the daring remarkable Spring Awakening.
