Tremough Follies are proud to present their annual musical 'Spring Awakening'.
Spring Awakening is a Tony Award-winning rock musical based on the controversial 1891 play by Frank Wedekind. Set in late-nineteenth century Germany, Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. With music performed by a live Orchestra, this landmark musical is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll.

Book & Lyrics by Steven Sater.
Music by Duncan Sheik.
Based on the play by Frank Wedekin.
