The Community Little Theatre production of “Spring Awakening,” directed by Becca Tinkham, will wrap up with performances at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, and Sunday April 14, at Community Little Theatre in Auburn.

“Spring Awakening” is based on the 1891 work of the same name written by dramatist Frank Wedekind. Turned into an angst rock musical with music by Duncan Sheik and book and lyric by Stephen Sater, “Spring Awakening” made its Broadway debut in 2006, with leads Wendla and Melchior portrayed by Lea Michelle and Jonathan Groff respectively.

The story “Spring Awakening” tells is a cautionary tale of what happens when adults are distrusting of youth, and the importance of communication, patience, and understanding between adults and children.

“Spring Awakening” contains content and trigger warnings due to mentions of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse, mental illness, abortion, death, and depictions of suicide and sexual content.

Ticket prices (including all fees) are $25 for adults, $22 for seniors and students, and $17 for children ages 13 and under. Tickets may also be purchased at the door. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit or call 207-783-0958. Community Little Theatre is located at 30 Academy St., Auburn.
