Winthrop University in Rock Hill presents Spring Awakening October 5th – 9th at Johnson Theatre. The original play that inspired the musical, Frank Wedekind’s work explicitly chronicles the coming of age of four teenagers and their friends. This black comedy takes a raw and poignant look at the difficulties young people face and the tragic circumstances that can arise: alienation, suicide and teen pregnancy. Nothing is off limits in this interrogation of the experience of growing up and the tragedies of childhood. Tickets $8-$15.
