WEST MILFORD — West Milford resident Nicholas Mellina plays Adult Man in "Spring Awakening," a rock musical based on the play by Frank Wedekind, being held at Studio Playhouse in Upper Montclair for the next few weekends.
It’s Germany, 1891. The beautiful young Wendla explores her body and asks her mother where babies come from. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior defends his buddy Moritz, a boy so traumatized by puberty he can’t concentrate on anything. One afternoon in the woods, Wendla and Melchior discover a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. Spring Awakening, winner of eight Tony Awards, celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion not to be forgotten.
This production of "Spring Awakening" is directed by Claudia Budris with assistant director and choreographer Lynsey Price, musical director Jim Millar and stage manager Leyda Torres.
This show has strong language and sexual situations.
Studio Playhouse is located at 14 Alvin Place, off Valley Road near the A&P, in Upper Montclair.
