Event Description
The Kent Trumbull Theatre will stage auditions for the upcoming production of Franz Wedekind’s "Spring Awakening." Auditions will take place at the Kent Trumbull Theatre, 4314 Mahoning Avenue, Warren.

Actors being sought include five young women and seven young men who can play high school students, and eight older actors (all ages) who can play various adult roles.

"Spring Awakening," a 19th century piece, was written by Wedekind and considered radical due to its unsentimental and brutally authentic storytelling. The play, which later inspired a musical of the same name, will be produced in its original expressionistic style, including mask work, distorted scenery and over the top portrayals of the many adult characters. The story traces the dawning sexual awareness of four teenagers – Melchior, Moritz, Wendla and Hansy – who, in their painfully funny contradictions, are at once too innocent and not remotely innocent at all. The play remains fresh and unsettling even in our own contemporary culture.
