Coming Soon: “Spring Awakening”

January 16, 2012

Event: “Spring Awakening” by Pangdemonium Productions
Venue: Drama Centre Theatre
Run: 3rd – 26th Feb 2012

You probably would have seen the publicity posters of it by now.

One of the most eagerly-anticipated musical productions of the year has got to be Pangdemonium’s staging of “Spring Awakening”, winner of 8 Tony Awards and 4 Drama Desk Awards.

“Spring Awakening” is a rock musical exploring the anxieties and repressiveness of a group of teenagers who are discovering their inner and outer tumult of sexuality, and features music by Duncan Sheik and books & lyrics by Steven Sater.

The musical is naturally an intense one, and the sizeable cast of young performers have been working extremely hard in preparation for this production.

You can follow the exploits of the the cast on Pangdemonium’s official Facebook page as they prepare long and hard for opening night, but I shall embed one video in particular that gives you an idea of just how rigourous the choreography (under Bill Calhoun) is:

I, for one, am looking forward to catching this musical to experience the intensity of the book and songs, as well as to be able to see the many arduous weeks of hard work put in by the cast finally come to fruition.

Tracie Pang directs and Bang Wenfu is the musical director.

Notable cast members include popular jazz singer Nathan Hartono as well as Filipino singing sensation Julia Abueva.

Tickets can be purchased from SISTIC (here).

Be sure to get your tickets to what might be one of the edgiest and most explosive musicals you’ll see in Singapore this year!
