El Paso Community College (EPCC) Theater Ensemble will present its first play of 2016, Spring Awakening.
Spring Awakening is a rock musical set in the late 19th century. Set in Germany, the musical shows a sexual revolution as teenagers struggle to discover their sexuality. The musical score mixes folk music with alternative rock music and helps spin a tale of tumultuous relationships, questioning faiths and rebellion.
Music, lyrics and book are by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, theater production and direction by Keith Townsend.
