SPRING AWAKENING is the explosive, electrifying and exhilarating musical that breaks all the rules of musical theatre. Full of heart, humanity and humour, it tells the tale of a group of teenagers embarking on a turbulent journey of self-discovery, each one experiencing a dramatic psychological/emotional/spiritual/sexual awakening: Meet The Misfit, The Idealist, The Innocent, The Rebel, The Mama’s Boy, The Runaway, The Abused… and for these youths growing up in 1892, the only means of expressing their emotions is music… ROCK MUSIC.
The Broadway production of SPRING AWAKENING was nominated for eleven Tony Awards, winning eight, including Best Musical, while its London production won four Olivier Awards.
And now PANGDEMONIUM! brings you the highly-anticipated Singapore Premiere of this deeply moving, darkly funny, and daringly truthful musical. SPRING AWAKENING will thrill and touch you with its powerful, poignant music and life-affirming story of love and hope.
Starring Nathan Hartono and Julia Abueva with Adrian Pang and Candice de Rozario as the Adults.
“A glorious Spring! Pangdemonium's decision to cast relative greenhorns is a statement in itself - a belief in the abilities of the next generation of actors. And the whole group does them proud... Don’t miss it!”
“This staging by PANGDEMONIUM is a highly creditable attempt at one of the best musicals ever written, and even outperforms the Tony-winning Broadway original in several respects.”
“This was what Pangdemonium aimed to do: to make a statement in Singapore musical theatre based on one of the most controversial plays that has ever been written, Spring Awakening. And boy, did they get it right.
Pangdemonium’s Spring Awakening is poetry and emotion brought to painful life. The company has certainly done justice to the work.”
