AUSTIN, Texas — Join Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward’s University Department of Performing Arts, as we conclude our 46th anniversary season with the landmark rock musical Spring Awakening.

Meet Wendla, a young girl yearning to understand what it means to be a woman; Mortiz, a troubled young boy struggling to come to terms with his new desires; and Melchior, a highly intelligent atheist with a desire to rebel. In an electrifying fusion of morality and rock and roll, this unforgettable musical explores the journey of eleven young people from adolescence to adulthood with poignancy and passion. Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, The New York Observer calls Spring Awakening “the best new musical in a generation.”

“…bold, funny and inviting.”  — The New York Times
