Penn State Centre Stage To Perform ‘Spring Awakening’

Penn State Centre Stage will showcase its take on popular hit Broadway musical “Spring Awakening,” starting with previews on Tuesday and Thursday and running through Nov. 18 at the Pavilion Theatre.

Cary Libkin, head of Penn State’s musical theatre BFA program, is directing the show and said in a Penn State news release that he is “so fortunate to be directing the musical.”

“Based on the play of the same name written in 1891, both versions are controversial, provocative and immensely entertaining,” he said. “Set in Penn State’s Pavilion Theatre, this intimate staging of ‘Spring Awakening’ will offer a unique reimagining of the Broadway hit.”

The Tony-award winning musical “is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock and roll that is exhilarating audiences across the nation like no other musical in years,” according to the official website for the show. “Glee” star Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff of “Frozen” fame both were in the original Broadway cast. About three years ago, then-Penn State theatre student Jim Hogan was on tour with a national tour of “Spring Awakening” and performed in Eisenhower Auditorium during its run.

Preview and matinee tickets cost $18, and evening performances cost $25. Penn State students with a valid student ID can purchase discounted tickets for $12. An opening night dinner at the Nittany Lion Inn  in the Faculty Staff Club will be offered on Friday at $45, but the price does not include the show ticket. You can purchase tickets at the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office, the Eisenhower Auditorium box office, Penn State Tickets Downtown Theatre Center on Allen Street, or by calling 814-863-0255 or 800-ARTS-TIX.

The performances will take place Nov. 4, Nov. 6- 8, Nov. 10-14, and Nov. 17-18 at 7:30 p.m. The performances this Tuesday and Thursday are the preview shows, and will cost less than the full performances that will start Friday. An extra matinee showing will take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 8.
