Production Description

Casting "Spring Awakening," based on the play by Frank Wedekind Synopsis: A rock musical based on the controversial German play which was banned in Germany for sometime due to it's frank portrayal of abortion, homosexuality, rape, child abuse and suicide. Set in late 19th century Germany the musical tells the story of teenagers discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality during a time of sexual oppression. Production states: "Before submitting, note that Deaf Theatre West is a non-profit 99 seat theatre that stages productions which bring together actors from both the hearing and non-hearing world. This is an incredible experience. The pay is minimal. This is a labor of love project with a high caliber team dedicated to making an impact on the theatre community in Los Angeles. Note that their production of 'Big River' also transferred to The Mark Taper and Broadway."
