When adolescent love, sex, and rock-and-roll collide with the stifling culture of 19th-century Germany, what can happen? The gritty, ground-breaking rock musical Spring Awakening tells the tale. Youth Musical Theater Company (YMTC) will stage this celebrated work in Oakland, opening February 24. The cast features 19 local theater students as teen characters, while two professional actors fill the adult roles. Professional directors, designers, and musicians support the cast. Spring Awakening is not recommended for those under high school age due to explicit language, mature themes, and sexual content.
