July 2008 - Spring Awakening
Spring Awakening is set in 19th century Germany. A bunch of kids in their early teens struggle to make sense of the world and come to terms with their approach to adulthood while facing the fiercely conservative and shielding attitudes of the adults around them.
In the Tony Award-winning musical, these frustrated teens are able to step outside themselves and express their real feelings and frustrations through songs -- the GTC attempts to recreate this by presenting a show that is really in two places at once: the reality of stuffy 1890s Germany and a metaphorical world of the character's heads.
Using dialogue borrowed from the book and lyrics of the musical we take something that is very intriguingly visual and musical and transform it into something intriguingly visual and textual within the limitations of Gaia Towns.
The show is funny and fun, but also touches on some material that is rather dark. Though there is obviously nothing explicit going on in Towns, the show implies scenes of or makes reference to masturbation, molestation, teen sex, suicide, and abortion -- so younger auditioners should consider their own maturity and comfort with these kinds of topics before singing up to audition.
We will be casting 10 roles.
