Ballard High School’s musical Spring Awakening rocks with teen rebellion and questioning

May 6, 7, 8 and 13, 14, 15, 2021 7:30 p.m.

information from Ballard High School Playmakers

The Ballard High School (BHS) Playmakers will stage the rock musical Spring Awakening virtually on May 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, reminding viewers everywhere that “we’ve all got our junk.” 

The nature of all teenagers is to question their parents. Back in 1890’s Germany on the cusp of the Industrial Revolution, things were no different. Spring Awakening is based on German playwright Frank Wedekind’s controversial play from 1891. It was so scandalous in its day for addressing sex violence and suicide that it was not staged until 1906. This contemporary production was first staged on Broadway in 2006, with a rock soundtrack by Duncan Sheik.
