Spring Awakening, set in late 19th century Germany, centers around a group of school children trying to navigate their sexual blossoming admist the oppressive surveillance of their parents and teachers. As the children begin to explore their bodies and seek information, they are confronted with an ugly reality of shame tactics, and are forced to bear the repercussions of their parents' silence.
In Spring Awakening, I played the role of Thea, a vibrant and curious young girl whose world is permanently shifted by tragedy. As she grows through out the play, she must learn from the mistakes of her parents and peers and find a way to retain her vital personality and constant optimism.
