The following is a description of the plot of Spring Awakening: In a 19th-century German village, a group of students ask too many questions, make huge mistakes, and force the adults in their lives to reexamine the things they teach. Exploring morality while embracing sexuality proves to be a balancing act for the town's young people, as they embark on the same timeless journey from adolescence to adulthood as those who came before them. Based on the 1891 novel by Frank Wedekind, Spring Awakening is a rock musical that uses a driving and unforgettable score to celebrate discovery, rebellion, and finding one's own way.

Adult admission is $10, while senior/staff/student tickets will be $5. Season tickets are available for a discount. Please call 952-358-8884 to make reservations or email at
