Spring Awakening: the Musical
Its Germany, 1891. A world where the grown-ups hold all the cards. The beautiful young Wendla explores the mysteries of her body, and wonders aloud where babies come from, till 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 he cant concentrate on anything. Not that the Headmaster cares. He strikes them both and tells them to turn in their lesson.
One afternoon in a private place in the woods Melchior and Wendla meet by accident, and soon find within themselves a desire unlike anything theyve ever felt.
