Spring Awakening at Theatre Institute at Sage

April 17-26

TIS presents 2006 Tony© Award winning musical 

Troy, NY ---  The Theatre Institute at Sage announces their production of the 2006 Tony © award-winning alternative rock triumph Spring Awakening directed by artist in residence Leigh Strimbeck, lyrics by Steven Sater and music by Duncan Sheik. This musical is a high-energy show following the lives of a group of teenagers facing a myriad of difficult life issues, based on the play written in the early 1900’s by Frank Wedekind. Although set in turn of the century Germany, their tribulations could have easily come from last night’s evening news.

Senior Katie Pedro, who plays the leading role of Wendla says, “I first heard the musical back when I was 14 and I was so moved I knew that one day I had to perform it.” Director Leigh Strimbeck says, “While this musical deals with difficult and mature issues it resonates with high school students especially because it represents their real lives.”

This ensemble piece features Russell Sage students and two adult actors, Kathleen Carey and Matt Harvey. Musical director Marcus Schlegel is directing a 5 piece band who will be visible during the performance, adding to the strength of the sound. In 2006 Spring Awakening won a total of eight Tony© Awards, including best musical.

The show is going to be performed at the James L. Meader Little Theater on the Russell Sage Campus in Troy, NY. Reservations are encouraged. Strong language and mature themes, recommended for mature teenagers 15 and up.
