Spring Awakening

Thursday October 24, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Friday October 25, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Saturday October 26, 2019 – 8:00 PM
Presented by Cordwainer Productions

Based on the 1891 German play Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind, and set in late 19th-century Germany, the musical tells the story of teenagers discovering the inner and outer tumult of teenage sexuality. In Spring Awakening, alternative rock is employed as part of the folk-infused rock score.

Focusing on issues of sex, repression, sexuality, gender identity, abuse, education, and suicide, Spring Awakening examines everything that is horrible about growing up with a stark, head-banging score, relatable characters, a sense of humour, and unflinching honesty.

Directed by Dane Shumak with Musical Direction by Justin Hiscox, this show is not to be missed as part of your 2019 Musical Theatre season!

Please note: Spring Awakening is not recommended for audiences under 14. Please contact cordwainerproductions@gmail.com with any questions about the content!

Bang Bang by Kat Sandler

Sunday November 10, 2019 – 7:30 PM
Presented by New Stages Theatre Company

A white playwright uses the shooting of an unarmed black youth by a police officer as a “jumping-off point” for his hit play, without the consent of the officer involved. With wit and humour, Bang Bang traces the impact of what “inspired by true events” actually means.

Part of The Page On The Stage Reading Series. Staged readings get to the imaginative heart of theatre. The words of the playwright, the voices of the actors, and the imagination of the audience bring the plays vividly to life.
