From June 22nd to June 30th, the multiple Tony Award-winning musical 'Spring Awakening' comes to life with a fresh new cast. The 15-member university/college aged ensemble is comprised entirely of former members of the Original Kids Theatre Company and takes the stage in the very place where their passion for the arts ignited -- the Spriet Family Theatre, Covent Garden Market, home of Original Kids.

Winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, 'Spring Awakening' is an electrifying fusion of morality, rebellion, sexuality and rock 'n' roll. Based on the 1892 German play, 'Spring Awakening' is the story of teenagers in the midst of sexual awakening, their desperate pleas for answers and the authorities withholding this knowledge. Naive Wendla is chastised when she questions her maturing body and how a baby is made. Fearless Melchior has lost his faith and searches for greater understanding in life while his best friend Mortiz is so consumed by puberty he cannot focus on his Latin drills. Originally banned in Germany for its provocative content, Spring Awakening' is as relevant today as it ever was.
The ensemble, comprised entirely of former Original Kids, features Nicola Atkinson, Victoria Barber, Becky Blake, Michael Esposito, Amelia Galizia, Rebecca Hall, Will Johnston, Daniel Mallett, Christine McKeon, Trevor Patt, Melissa Peters, Ryan Price, Aaron Schaefer, Erika Schramowsky and Andrew Varkaris.
The show runs June 22-24, 28-30 at 8pm and June 23 & 30 at 2pm at the Spriet Family Theatre, second level of the Covent Garden Market, 130 King Street, London, Ontario.
