Baldwin Wallace University's nationally acclaimed music theatre program created the first collegiate virtual production of the powerful Broadway rock musical "Spring Awakening," which premiered November 19-22 and was profiled in American Theatre magazine and The New York Times. Due to demand, the virtual production will be shared for a second weekend of streaming performances, Thursday to Sunday, December 17-20.

The groundbreaking virtual performances of the eight-time Tony Award-winning Best Musical created by Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik will be streamed digitally. See trailer below.

Set in late 19th-century Germany, "Spring Awakening" explores the turmoil of adolescent sexuality, with themes of isolation, control, trauma, identity and enlightenment as timely today as they were when the musical premiered on Broadway in 2006.

Based on a controversial 1891 play by German playwright Frank Wedekind, the story also deals with heart wrenching and potentially triggering topics like teenage sexuality, suicide and incest.
