Frank Wedekind’s theatre performance, “Spring Awakening,” opens on October 4th. The performance captures the essence of teenage life in the early 20th century. The impudently direct content inspired avant-garde playwrights of future eras, and was subject to censorship for the first sixty-three years of production. The themes depicted in the performance— adolescence struggle, anxiety, and sexual awakening— are eerily familiar, even premiering a century prior, to modern times.
This performance, which first premiered in 1906, is being held in the University Center for the Arts in the Studio Theatre, starting October 4th at 7:30 p.m. “Spring Awakening” is part of the CSU Theatre Guest Artist Initiative with Denver Center Theatre’s Douglas Langworthy’s new translation.
The uncensored content in “Spring Awakening” is “R-rated.” Admission is for 18 years of age and up only. For more information, please visit their website.
