Mill Mountain Theatre
Directed & Choreographed by Travis Kendrick
"Masterfully staged by Travis Kendrick, this production asks us to engage with the work, its performers and with one another. The show demands that we 'stay woke.' Staged in the round, performers and audience share the space: Performers weave in and out of the audience, and we are constantly aware of their presence. Intimacy is a central element, which this ensemble boldly embraces as they reveal the inner thoughts, dreams and desires of the characters.
The magic of this production lies in its simplicity, and in its ability to share the story with its audience. I’ve seen the show several times (including the original Broadway production), and this is the first time that I fully experienced the story."
-Amanda Nelson, The Roanoke Times
"Phenomenal performances, creative staging, powerful theatre, beautiful stage pictures, Spring Awakening is a must see, mature show about coming of age in the 19th century that is extremely relevant to today."
-Jeff McCoy, Director of Theatre Arts - Pulaski County
