Baldwin Wallace University's nationally acclaimed music theatre program will stage a virtual production of the powerful Broadway rock musical "Spring Awakening."

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. For a behind-the-scenes peek, production stills and discussions with current and former BW cast members, visit the Conservatory of Music's Conversation site.

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.
